AITO KITAZAKI Interview – 20-06-2020
«In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic«
1- How do you define yourself? How do you define your projects?
A- What I enjoy things is reach my message to many people by Street Art in the world and I’m not interested an art culture so Street Art is just tool for reach my voice and opinions to people
2- How did you start working on street art?
A- When I was 18years old, I found BANKSY’S ART BOOK in store in Japan that is beginning my Street artist life but in Japan is no Street Art culture and no opportunity to learn about how to become Street artist so when I was 20years old I moved to UK for becoming real Street artist. Of course no school to leaning I just painted on Street many times (but I didn’t do illegal paint ).
3- Where do you find the inspiration to create your projects? Are they modifiers of urban space?
A- I’m inspired by Banksy that way to reach my message to people and my way to drawing inspired by Japanese Manga culture and all my philosophy comes from ZEN these made Japanese Street artist AITO KITAZAKI
4- What does Street Art represent for you in this constantly changing world?
A- I think that the role of street art is like a loudspeaker that conveys the thoughts and messages that should be delivered to the world. No matter how dishonest the visible world is, I think the message of Street Art should always be pure and honest.
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?
A- From the general idea of Japanese people, of course, painting a picture on a land of someone without permission is a crime. I think there is a legitimate way for street art to fit the place and culture, and I think we should evolve the culture of street art more flexibly and wisely.
6- How long does it usually take to prepare each project?
A- It’s depends on what I want to paint.
