“It’s like a game – you have to put your name up on the walls of your city as much as possible . Like a cat or a dog pisses to mark the territory – thats how we paint . We don’t care about people who aren’t interested in graffiti .We do it for the people like us . Only the other writers will understand and value the beauty and the style .
There is bombing – big lettering made with spray cans with filling in the letters and an outline . But you can also just write your name with a marker – this is also a very respected style , from where all the graffiti came from . This is my favorite style ,because it’s the best way to show your handstyle. Also if you paint quick at a top spot in the city and in the morning hundreds of people see it – that’s the best ! That is the whole point . It’s like creating a whole new person that lives parallel with you . You develop it , you change it and you shove it into the masses , like a computer game . And then the other writers are going to see it and acknowledge it : “ Yes this guy is just squashing everyone ! “ In reality this is the goal – self-assertion in the scene of course.
Here they repaint everything very fast . In other cities it’s not like that . You go to Amsterdam , Milan – they still have graffiti from the 90’s and the people respect it because it’s history . And I just take a picture and put it in the archive because most likely on the next day it will be gone . My archive is on a harddisk outside of my home because everything can happen . You have to be careful . But when we were kids we ran more from the peope then now . Nowadays you want to stay and finish the painting more and more . You have to explain to the people : “ I am not doing drugs , I am not doing anything harmful and anything wrong . I just want to experience joy from painting” . Graffiti is a subculture which doesn’t carry evil , aggression political or national signification . Simply in one moment of your life you start to notice all the lettering on the streets and you realize : this is my thing “ .
