do you write and what crews are you in ?
Why do you write that and where did you get your name from?
really remember. I was just thinking about the name and liked the
letters. To have letters that you like is very important.
how long have you been painting graffiti?
for about 3 years.
made you start?
of mine gave me a FatCap magazine, and I bited a Bits piece. Later
on I found out that it wasnt a too smart thing to do.
do you feel has given you inspiration?
In the beginning it was the big norwegian writers such as Hets and
Poker. People that were in magazines. Afterwards it became people
such as Kent, german style.
do you feel has changed the most from when you started until now?
I used to paint together with only certain others, but now Ive got
to know alot more writers. And I have become alot better.
is it that motivates you to paint graff? What goes through your
mind when you go out to bomb?
like a drug - you just can't stop, and you think about it all the
time. If you are involved with graff it takes most of your time
and life. Before I go out to paint I think out where to go and how
to do the piece.
you feel any guilt?
No, not at all ! I don't look upon graff as crime. It's pretty crazy
that if you get busted you can get longer custody then pedofily
you had any experiences with Security Consept?
met them a couple of times. They're not like what they used to be
- they were more crazy before.
you count your pieces, and if so how many have you done?
Between 500 and 600. 250 of them are trains.
you travel alot to other countries to paint?
as much as I can. And I've painted in Sweden, Denmark, Germany,
Holland and France.
you have any goals or dreams?
have a goal about making a wholetrain, but if this will happen it
probably won't be in Norway.
deserves most respect; those who do alot of quantity or those that
struggle with making quality?
for quality, but I respect those that go for the quantity too.
do you think of internet pages compared to magazines, books and
really checked it too much out yet. But if the pages are good that's
cool. I think it will recruit more writers too.
do you think about people that only paint legal?
they like that then that's good for them. But then alot of the point
about graff is gone. The excitement is important. It must be boring
in the long run to paint only legal.
do you think about the graff scene in Oslo as it is nowdays?
it's totally fucked up ! There is no scene here to say it with other
words. Everybody is in groups and against eachother. And everyone
gets claimed for biting.
do you think will happen with graff in the future?
it will stay alive. I don't think styles will change that much.
a writer you get certain experiences and adventures that 'normal'
people don't have. Like we have an own small world - please tell
a little chase story!
day Geez, Neil and me that were pretty early in a train yard to
paint. We checked it out and it seemed pretty ok so we started to
paint. It was during winter and it was pretty cold. We had been
painting for about 10 minutes or something. I went a bit back to
get a view of my piece and to warm my hands. Then I saw six or seven
people entering the other side of the yard. We just stood there
and watched them enter. They were just standing there and at the
same time jumping up and down to stay warm. Unfortunatly they saw
us so we started to run up an old freight train track. We stopped
up for a bit and saw them comming after us. Then all of the sudden
this large guy came running right up behind us. We got out through
a small hole in a fence and got a short lead. We spread forces and
ran each our direction. I ended up with laying down in a garden,
while Geez was hiding another place and we stayed there for about
15 minutes. Neil was hiding his own place and didn't lay around
for too long and got up. When he got up he met a security guard
who asked him if he had seen any taggers. Neil said he hadn't seen
any and got a light for his smoke from the security guard ! I met
him later and we went down to the train station and took the first
There was three others
that was supposed to paint together with us, and were to meet us
down in the central of the city. Unfortunatly they got busted for
the pieces we had started on. At least we got away. Geez had walked
straight by a guard with snow all over him. He wasn't stopped he
just got an angry look after him and went into a shop an bought
a soda. The guard didn't really care about trying to catch anyone
either because they had already busted 3 others. They were put in
jaila night, while we who had painted got away. Shit happens !
Yeah I want to give shout outs to: Geez, Nevis, Vader, Hets, Peli,
Yoes, Kars, Tube, Ater, Fres, Sire, Taxi, Wirl and the rest of the
