How is the scene in your city?
I consider it very active and stylish, very few actually paint, but we paint every style and carry on the war.

Any city is good, but each has its best bits.
The best time to paint
In the past people seemed to have more tolerance for graffiti, paint where we wanted and there was less police. Those were different times.

Now that fines and intolerance reign in the streets ….. but I can say that I still enjoy graffiti as much or more than the first day I did.

I have spent a lot of good, bad, funny, scary, a whole cocktail of feelings …. I usually do monologues and always laughed at.
What pushes you to move on?
My personal satisfaction and friendships that I have created within this movement. And of course, my girl Aire that supports all my craziness.

Studying to become judges and get rid of jail ….. If painting is a crime then God forgive me.

Steel or walls?
What ever I can. Rather wall …..but it all depends.

Everything possible, but in moderation. Love ganja.
Do not stop, I enjoy all styles of music , everything has its time. I love music.
