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

Numskull: Back when I was a youngen at
school my brother got me into Graffiti. For a good few years I was a right
little vandal, tagging anything I could and occasionally doing a piece. That got
me nowhere so I quit that, and with my bro’s paint started stenciling our
skateboards. From then on it progressed from the skateboard to the street and
now here I am.

Wooster: Why numskull and why

Numskull: The “numskulls” was an old comic
strip from England I used to read quite a alot, with this kid who’s head was run
from the inside by 6 little people called the “numskulls”. Fascinating! The
reason why I chop heads off and replace them with fruit+veg is to take away
thought from the body and create a fantasy character without reason.

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

Numskull: PatchWK from Sydney; they have the
most unique style of stenciling I have ever seen. My brother (meph) and all his
mates. Daim, banksy, Meek, Prism. I could go on for a while.

to post and/or to see street art?

area, in the city, or Melbourne.
