My ambition is to take my personal experience and relation with graffiti into new media and environments, without losing the energy of traditional graffiti bombing.

Graffiti is often blamed for being just simple territorial pissing, so that’s what I’m trying to express by working with more elements than just traditional graffiti letters in its traditional context (city and suburbs). I’m focusing more on the energy released from performing graffiti, an energy that comes out in irrational lines and moves based upon instinct and feeling. It may not look or smell so good to the beholder, but pissing feels good, and is necessary for everyone, everywhere.
