You are one of the few people that can use aerosol in fine art, on relatively small canvas and make beautiful detailed art.  Any comment on your choice to stick with that medium in your fine art career?
“I think that I need to refine spraycan art more, and my ideal is to change people’s view of what graffiti is – or what you can do with a spraycan.  I don’t think Americans know as a whole what can be done with this.  I want to prove that person wrong and give them another view, that when that word (graffiti) comes into their vocab they think of it differently.  And for me to switch up and use a paintbrush would change everything.  I don’t see me using a paintbrush anytime soon.  In fact I threw away all my paintbrushes from years ago… no acrylics, no oil, no watercolor… there’s no reason.  And if I stay with this market, I show other artists that it’s possible to do this, that they don’t have to switch over.  That it is possible to do this with spraypaint.”

“I don’t know if there is much of a separation (between tagging & graffiti art), you can’t take those things away. Or what you have is a college art student going to an art store and buying some spray cans and calling themself a graffiti artist.  It’s like building blocks… tagging is kind of like when you’re in elementary school learning to write the alphabet – you start with that then you gravitate towards other things like throw-ups, and you get this initial high; then either you stick with that or you venture into the art.  But I don’t think you can tear those two things apart.  There’s not a separation in it.  Unless I’m missing something here…”
