/>Age: 20
Hometown: Perth, Western
Australia
Where do you now live?: Perth
Where
would you most like to live?:
Not to sure because I haven’t travelled
alot, I used to think Sydney, because its somewhat the centre of all things here
in Australia, but although Perth is so isolated and at times dull, its where all
my great friends and family live so I’m happy here for the time being. I’m
looking forward to check out Europe next year though.
Who was your
first “hero” in life?:
I’m not too sure, probably the ghostbusters when
i was younger smile
What is your favorite thing to do on your day off
from work?:
ohh..so many things! I’ve been bodyboarding for about 10
years now,so with what free time I have, I like to travel up and down the coast
surfing with friends. Otherwise, listening and collecting music,
records,tapes,cd’s whatever. I’m addicted! also painting and just cold chillin
with friends smile
What is your favorite color?: sky blue
/>Who (or what) do you love?: obviously my friends and family,
but just what i mentioned before really, just being able to bodyboard, party
with friends,listen to music (hiphop,oldschool electro,reggae,punk,rock,motown
and chilled) and painting or drawing.

/>Who and/or what are some of your influences?

Well
i’d have to say love and music are my main influnces. Some people and friends
tease me about it hehehe, but I like to put things up that remind me of love,
hence the rose. I try to put some love back on the streets smile


/>What other artists do you most admire?

Its hard
because so many people are doin amazing things these days and thanks wooster for
exposing it all. I’d say Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, Banksy, Akayism, El Tono
are ones that come to mind. Locally, all my friends, YOK, Ladies and
Gentlemen,VICTIM,WILHELM,DENY and the very talented AYEM collective.

How would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?

colourful “tattoo like” roses with a pinch of
love.


What other talent would most like to have?


To be able to make music or be a real good b-boy
:D

/>What do you fear the most?

I’m fearing the
growing ego’s of people in Perth, especially the people who buy expensive or
“cool” clothes which they believe give them status above others and hang out in
“posh suburbs”. I fear heartbreak and love too.


What is
your greatest ambition?


To be the best person that I
can be and live a fun and happy life smile
