Oblique Interview – 09- 11-2021

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

I am Romain L. aka Oblique, I live in Toulouse in the South of France. I’m a graffiti artist that I have been practicing for over 20 years. I have taken a new direction for 3 years now with my artistic project “oblique “ which revolves around post graffiti, graphical and abstract art.

2- How did you start working on street art?

Bored with classical graffiti, I wanted to take a new direction, and since I have been rocked since my youth by artists like Miro or Kandinsky thanks to my parents, I unconsciously headed for the abstract universe.

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

I find my inspiration in the letters which become forms in my compositions as well as the colors which come most of the time by 3. Obviously they modify the urban space, like any work in the street I think and this is all that makes it rich.

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

Street art is a generic term to represent the arts that come from the street, but the multiplicity of genre means that today everything merges, contemporary or abstract art comes to the streets and street art or graffiti in the museums.

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?

I think there are a lot of other problems for the police to deal with than wasting their time chasing street artists … But city politics are sometimes messed up. I had my dose of problems with graffiti going up to a short stay in prison … But that was before 🙂

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

I have 2 different working methods: for my canvases I make a preparatory sketch that I rework on a computer to have a better rendering possible, for the walls, apart from the orders and commissioned work, I try to be in the spontaneity and I don’t prepare anything, I adapt myself according to the wall to give free rein to my creativity.
