However, I think mortality was definitely a primary influence. My father died when I was seven, so I feel like that has impacted how I think about and approach living and art-making alongside growing up as a genderqueer person and the intense questioning that this often leads to about one’s identity and how one interacts with the rest of the world
It’s such a competitive place, there are so many types of artists in the city and most of them inspire me in some form or fashion, whether it’s an illustrator, graffiti writer, street artist, collage artist or whatever, you know just different things to learn from them. We have such a huge talent pool
Montreal based artist Andrew Da Silva talks about Montreal art scene! Read the whole interview
A big meeting of tons of writers, I’ve met tons of people through Under Pressure, which is super cool, people I wouldn’t have met usually. It’s a good thing, it’s cool to show people what we do and it’s really exposed. Kids come, old people come, people who have no idea what graffiti is will come and check it out so that’s a really cool thing.

"Artiste", c’est une étiquette que l’on te pose. J’aime bien dessiner, et parfois j’expose
Ma plus grande source d’inspiration reste le Hip-Hop; Je pense vraiment être un produit de cette génération la. J’ai grandi avec des artistes tel que IAM, Assassin, NTM, qui étaient les précurseurs dans leur domaine à une époque où la musique n’était pas aussi démocratisée qu’aujourd’hui. Ils sont arrivés avec pleins de revendications, du fait qu’il était marginalisés , ce qui fait qu’ils ont pu mettre leur musique au service de quelque chose de plus grand qu’eux. J’imagine que c’est un des sens vers lequel j’aimerai bien aller.

Art Attack #05 : Lapin, Loopkin, Mad Dog, Sime – UNDER PRESSURE 2014 // Graffiti Convention

Leçon de rattrapage pour ceux qui ont loupé le dernier Art Attack.

Read our recap from the last Art Attack like you were there!

C’est le premier évènement à Montréal qui a mis le graffiti à Montréal sur la map à une époque où c’était très marginal et c’est un des plus vieux évènements de graff aussi qui continue d’exister, c’est un bon héritage.
