/>Wooster: How did you get started in creating art for the
street?

Eltono: Before 12 years of traditional
spray can graffiti, I got borred about the scene so I started to work in a
different way.

Wooster: How did you come up with the
characters that you use in your art?

Eltono: The
symbol I use to paint is just a graphical interpretation of my name “eltono”
which means “the tone”. Then, visual influences and background adaptation make
my symbol evolve to a more simple and integrated shape.

/>Wooster: What other street artists do you most admire and
why?

Eltono: Nuria and the friends who I use to
work with: Ignorancia, el Cartel, nano4814, Stak & hnt, Tofer, Poch…

/>Wooster: What’s your favorite city, neighborhood, or block,
to post and/or to see street art?

Eltono: Madrid
Lavapies, Paris, and everywhere you can find an old and rough city center.
/>
Wooster: What inspires you now?

/>Eltono: I really like the way people spontaneously comunicate
in the street, posting announces, sticking, writing, scratching…The street
communication used by city councils, and the handmade typographic signs are also
a main inspiration source for me ( href="http://www.fotolog.net/eltono">www.fotolog.net/eltono)
