Truly Design Crew Interview – 21- 07-2021

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

We are a Graffiti/Street Art crew which morphed into a design studio over time, hence our projects revolve around mural art but also include branding,  graphic design, illustration, and artistic installation. We bridge traditional means of communication and contemporary visual language.

2- How did you start working on street art?

We started out as graffiti writers, and our passion for art in a broader scope led us to experiment beyond the boundaries of traditional graff, including graphic design, illustration, and anamorphic art. But ultimately, we started by painting illegally and trying to obtain legal spaces where we could experiment ideas and techniques with more calm and freedom.

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

Yes, but our inspiration comes not only from urban art. We are inspired by visual arts as a whole, ranging from historical art to graphic design and conceptual art: anything which catches our attention, basically. We collect tons of books and explore any museum/exhibition which features an interesting collection.

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

Street Art is the largest spontaneous artistic movement in the world, furthermore created by kids, which also includes illegal action. It has spread globally in a matter of a couple of decades. Many ground-breaking ideas and techniques originate from this movement and it is an ever-changing form of communication which describes its time with impacting force.

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?

Legal and illegal Street Art have different purposes and are driven by very different sentiments and should continue to coexist independently. Street art was born in complete illegality and its strength and impact continues to derive from this. Our opinion is that, legal or illegal, Street Art should never ruin anything. As for ourselves, we had a couple of run-ins with the law more than 15 years ago, but nothing serious. We just thanked our lucky star and toned it down a bit.

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

Between brainstorming, research, more brainstorming, working on drafts, reviews, and so forth, the average time to cook up a project is about a week, but reviews, especially when it comes to commissioned work, can lead up to two or three weeks of work. Physically realizing a project of just about any format will rarely take more than a week.
