Innerfields Interview – 3- 08-2021

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

We mainly try to mirror our environment and the people around us. We create mostly figurative

motives in a realistic manner, that are mixed with graphical elements and symbols. The human

being, bound to being part of nature and all too often opposed to it, is a major topic in our body

of work.

2- How did you start working on street art?

We have been growing up with graffiti and at some point, while playing around with painting

characters, we realized through the influence of artists like Banksy, Pejac, Wes 21, Ma’claim,

Neo Rauch, Egon Schiele, Alphonse Mucha, Etam Cru and others, that we can actually make a

meaningful statement and tell a story with our pieces. That made it much more interesting for us.

We formed as a group in 1998.

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

We always want to fit the murals into the context of their location, so they reflect their

environment. This we combine with current topics of our society. We feel a big responsibility

here, because this art form is so public and people don’t choose so consciously if they want to

look at it, like in a museum. We believe it’s totally possible to give new impulses and also

colorful brightness to an urban environment.

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

It is reflecting the big topics of the time to illuminate other perspectives and modify the

discussions regarding those topics. Changing the world always starts with the idea of what you

want to change. Art has the assignment to give impulses where we need changes.

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?

In the beginning we were often confronted with the police, but over the years we have focused

more and more on our murals.

It’s a tough question, because on one hand, the tension of being illegal, but partly accepted

brings life into this art form and makes it interesting. On the other hand, art should of course

not be illegal. And it’s hard to tell, when exactly graffiti can start to count as art, it’s very

subjective. Every name tag scribbled on a wall is a form of expression of someone and can be

seen as art. Or it can be seen as dirt. It’s a also a discussion about ownership and bureaucracy.

Who gets to decide about facades? The people who look at them? Someone who works in an

office? The owner? The artist?…

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

Sometimes two years, sometimes 5 days. It s the magic of life flow.
