STORY BEHIND YOUR PSEUDO:
Damn close to parts of my real name and to me the perfect letter-combo to balance the whole name.
FIRST AND RECENT GRAFFITI EXPERIENCES:
Grew up in the suburbs of Copenhagen with nothing to do besides playing soccer and riding scoters. Getting introduced to graffiti by a friend in the mid-90´s was perfect to me and had everything I was looking for as a teenager, colors in a grey world, adventures and way to express myself.
I’ve been traveling around the world the last months in Cities like New York, Berlin Naples, Rome and Sofia to take part in paintings and various events. At the writing moment I’m taking part of big Mural inside Copenhagen done as collaboration between Danish and South American artists.
INFLUENCES AND INSPIRATION:
Early influences came from traditional graffiti, classic publications like stylewars and subwayart, and painting alot with Bates. Today im inspired by everything from abstract art, graphic design, tattoing, comics and my travels around the world.
