Evoke - The A’s to Our Q’s:

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

I’ve drawn since i was wee, but when i moved from the woods to the
cement it was something i got into right away.

How would you describe your style?

there was a time when all i could do was work from mistakes.. mistakeism i
called it. just an improve type of thing that allowed for spontaneous creation
to work at that moment and feel those emotions. Sometime it flops, as there are
emotions that just make for awful work. Now, i dont know what i do, it takes
time to see it for what it is and label it.


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

Evoke: i like the work of people who share
their highs and lows, hrmm…  labrona, berzerker, other, dsturbo, gofish, peru,
notime, royal, hope, twist, maki, erakahn, sonic3000, tele, human 5, jo mo,plus
3….there are so many.

Wooster: What’s your
favorite city, neighborhood, or block, to post and/or to see street art?
Evoke: Ottawa, there is so much great work here..
under buffs or ready to jump from the minds of the bizarrly amazing artists that
live here. I believe in ottawa.

Wooster: What
inspires you now?

Evoke: The numbness of Ottawa,
the urgency that street art can share with the population ideas and emotions
that will affect the communal conciousness.. these are important times..
graffiti has great power and i see it only beginning to be harnessed.
