When did you start writing and why?

I starting writing just over 7 years ago. There wasn’t really a reason i just caught the bug and the rest is history…

Who were your main influences when you started?

When i started i was pretty young and everyone i could see was a influence it was all new to me. Mainly everyone who was doing it in East London at the time.

Hows the scene in your city?

The scene in my citys grimey its just chrome dubs & bombs vs brown paint.. – With steel if something manages to run past morning rush hour you can put your money on it that it will get flicked and recycled onto every uk blog going haha.

Best city’s you have painted in?

Home is where the heart is

Best and worst times painting?

Too many best times & the worst times are only when its in the moment once its over it becomes part of the memories…

Favourite five writers?

I like a lot of different styles & writers, cant really narrow it down

What pushes you to carry on?

The ability to create something out of nothing. The sense of freedom. The escape from reality. That sort of thing…

Any plans for the future?

Yeah just to keep the balance between influence, temptation and responsibility while trying to stay true to myself..

Steel or Walls?

Any surface is a good surface…

Booze or Drugs?

Drinking every now & then dont hurt…


Everything really pretty easy going.
