Wooster: How did you get started in
creating art for the street?
DA!: Back in 7th
grade a friend of mine showed me a graff magazine. from then on i started
learning graffiti and did it thru high school. after a while i wanted to check
out a new style of street art by expressing thoughts and styles thru
wheatpasting posters. Thats when I started my propaganda movement called DA!
which resulted in designing posters, stickers and what not.
