Streetkonect: how old are you?

old enough to know man.

Streetkonect: where do you live? and describe the art scene in your place.

i live in qc, philippines, planet earth..katipunan is my home..i don't know much about the art scene over here..but right now, graffiti is everywhere! you won't find a tagless street in the metro. which is cool coz you see the rapid growth of the artform from when it originally started. but at the same time, it sucks coz you've got all these kids tagging all over the place making it look like shit. but everything's basically the've got the new kids trying to make a name for've got the oldies either fading out or making comebacks..and you'll always have the haters typing away in their chatboxes.

Streetkonect: how would you describe your art and your artistic process?

i really have no description for what i do..probably "vandalism"? no artistic process involves me looking for spots and painting spots. i try to mix in a few legals sometimes but i'd really rather not. everytime i'm out from being stagnant i guess and it drives me to go out and do more. painting, i always have this mindset of getting over keeps me from being stagnant i guess and it drives me to go out and do more.

Streetkonect: who/what are your influences?

pol medina jr..american comics..the crew kst (i've bitten so much shit from them haha)..udon (lords/md's) and basically anybody who's out there pushing their shit.

Streetkonect: what are the things you usually do besides making art?

if i'm not painting..i'm probably asleep.

Streetkonect: what is your greatest ambition?

is national artist too much? doesn't take much to be one these days..realistically, i wish i could be painting everyday..doesn't matter where,just as long as i'm out expressing myself..

Streetkonect: motto in life?

"always keep yourself balanced. if your head is in doubt, go with your gut."

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
