SPIDERTAG Interview – 2-05-2020

«In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic«

1- How do you define yourself? How do you define your projects?

I define myself as a Street Artist and Muralist.

I define my projects as Interactive Neon Murals (INM)

«Reflexiones y número 7» – «Invitado por la galería Dream Graff Shop, viajé a Tailandia para terminar 2019 con una exposición individual, Reflexions of the neon dream y realizar el Interactive Neon Mural #7. El concepto de todo el proyecto tenía como base la casi monocromía del verde -la parte interactiva podía ser verde y también de otros colores- y los materiales usados principalmente fueron el ladrillo y los sprays -jugando con los neones- Fue una experiencia extraordinaria que mezcló la aventura del viaje a culturas lejanas, el jet lag y la presión para realizar todo en muy poco tiempo, con la inestimable colaboración de un equipo de trabajo de 8 personas que hicieron posible este montaje doble, electrizante y Pad Thai.»

2- How did you start working on street art?

I started around 2008. I found street art and graffiti and I loved it. I’m connected with art since I was a kid, but urban form of art was more fresh and gave me more the sense of freedom. Illegality gave me the sensation of a rebel way of being an artist.

3- Where do you find the inspiration to create your projects? Are they modifiers of urban space?

Yes, for me the basics of street art is to modify or integrate the artwork in the street. Its a dialogue in many ways with the surroundings. 

Inspiration starts with an idea, with a vision and then you have to think how to make this posible and do it!

4- What does Street Art represent for you in this constantly changing world?

Street Art should be a question and an answer. Street Art should be also constantly changing.

5- Do you think Street Art should be legal or should it continue to be a form of art pursued by the police? Have you ever had problems?

Illegal art sounds very bad as a concept for a modern society. But it’s also cool that Street Art expands the limits of what is legal and what is not. The illegality is also a good fuel to be active and fresh in terms of creativity. 

Yes, I was stopped many times by cops. And I spent one night in jail too. 

6- How long does it usually take to prepare each project?

It can many days, sometimes even month or just a quick improvised moments…
