Go ahead and introduce yourself… What part of the world do you stay in, what do you write, and who are you? How did you start vandalizing and what compels you to continue? Give us the basic information shit.
I write Noway and represent NR and WZRDS crews. I stay in Vancouver CANADA. I started doing dummy letters when I was like 14 or something then picked up a can in 2005. I like to spray big letters usually on trains so friends that live far away can see them and I keep doing this cause like tattooing, you can’t be done. You can’t finish graffiti; I have bad ADD so anything that keeps my interest for a while I really like, and the amount of fucking visual garbage I have to look at everyday keeps me motivated to do something nice.
TOP 5 MEDIUMS/UTENSILS
Speed Ball Ink
B4 nib on my dippy pen
Concentrated Water Color
Spray paint (Down for whatever but yeah when you hold a can of American Rusto that shit goes hard. Best part of going down to the states is that shit, them switching the tips was a real boner move but I ain’t that mad. Montana is a nice treat.)
Arches Board (Doing paintings on floppy garbage paper is just stupid.)

I think photography is too personal to share with a lot of other people but that BOOGIE dude takes some raw ass photos that I really like.
Too many tattoo artists to name, dudes that just kill it. Steve Bryne, Tony Hundahl, Jeff Zuck, just people that create powerful images that you can’t ignore.
