    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 same..you've got the new kids trying to make a name for themselves..you'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 idea..my 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 everybody..it 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 internet..my 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."
