mudwig dans - The A’s to Our Q’s:
style="clear:both; padding-bottom: 0.25em;">
Wooster: How did you get started in
creating art for the street?
mudwig dans: probably a
combination of hanging out with more graff writers and the frustration of not
getting my drawins seen quick enough.so i started spray paintin n making
stickers just to get stuff an audience.
Wooster: How did you
come up with the imagery that you use in most of your drawings?
/> "left">mudwig dans: by drawing the things other folk can’t even see (
eg.elf boots,unicorn cross-sections).then takin a drawing of something else and
sticking them together. I usually fill a sketch book per fortnight so I tend to
stockpile thousands of images on my computer.I put them together like 2d toys
and put them in photos or make stickers or paint they.
What other street artists do you most admire and why?
dans: any one doing it for the the belief in their art, and puttin out
original styles. I like the stuff that can’t be catergorised along with all the
shit and isn’t gonna look dated in 2 years. I’ll name
..Barnstormers, Flying fortress, Rowdy, Paris, Eco, Osgemeos,
Sickboy….........but theres loads more.
Wooster: What’s your
favorite city, neighborhood, or block, to post and/or to see street art?
mudwig dans: I dont know?obviously i stick most stuff up in
bristol but its pretty baron as far as thriving street art scenes go…So I’d
like to see and do more stuff further afield
