Evyrein Interview – 21- 08-2021
1- How do you define yourself? How do you define your projects?
Many people call me an artist and that makes me smile.
But I just don’t recognize myself as an artist, if I had to define myself I would simply define myself more as creative, that is, I am.
Like my projects, after all, creations … starting from stencils, working with sprays, wheat pastes, sculptures etc …
2- How did you start working on street art?
Since I was a child I have always frequented the world of Graffiti, I’m talking about the 90s.
At the time I was a stake for friends who painted trains but I always thought I couldn’t paint myself, so I let others do it and I enjoyed the show. From there, however, I became passionate about the world of graffiti, I knew and attended many people. We were a great group, TDR crew. Then, at some point, I learn about street art, messages, stencils, poster art. From there, everything changed for me.
3- Where do you find the inspiration to create your projects? Are they modifiers of urban space?
Inspiration is everywhere. On the street, from a videogame, in music, in films, rather than from real and contemporary events. I must also admit that mine, compared to that of many of my colleagues, is a very long process. I would like to be much more productive and I can’t think or decide to do something. Either I get lightning-fast inspiration or I can’t do anything. I have also refused many commissioned works, I could say that I don’t do any of them except for a few very rare cases. Madevo always be free to express myself and do what I want …. without anyone giving me the issues or telling me what to do. I feel very free in this sense, here in Italy those like me are called mavericks.
4- What does Street Art represent for you in this constantly changing world?
Street art for me is a necessity, a desire for expression.I have never done anything for others, I do it for myself, then even if you like it welcome, I am very pleased.
It is a need and also precisely because the world continues to change and is always evolving that I find inspiration for my works.
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?
Look, unfortunately or fortunately my mentality is very underground. Once if you got caught busting your ass, obviously I’m talking about tagging and graffiti, so that’s normal for me. Frankly, it is not important whether it is legal or not, the important thing is to go out and do it, not giving a damn. I must say that I had several problems with the police, a couple of times I had to escape but other times it went well … a cop who is in the fragrance of crime also told me BRAVO! Jajajajaj
In any case, I never got along with them, both outside and inside street art.
I never liked the police, I don’t like them now, and I will never like them. 1312
6- How long does it usually take to prepare each project?
It depends… .as I told you before, mine is a fairly long process, I’m picky and often I’m never happy with what I’m going to do.
In any case, once the idea came to me and it is clear what I decided to do, I look for a suitable place where I can best accommodate the work. In my works I am very provocative so I often choose «difficult» places. I want the place that hosts the work to create controversy too. I prefer the central areas, where as many people as possible can see what I have achieved.
I mostly go out at night.
