1- If you had to choose a Street Art piece that you created, as a transformation of the urban space, which one would you choose? How does this Street Art piece denote urban space metamorphosis?

This work by Basket players changed that place and in my country many places wanted their courts to look like this.

2- Why did you make this Street Art piece in this urban space? Was it the town hall or the property owner who authorized or asked you to create it? Can we consider this work as illegal/vandalism or legal, what is your criteria?

The owners asked me, it was legal.

3- What is the message you want to communicate through this Street Art piece? Is it related to the urban space where you did it?

Just look for good photos, the owners of this place chose the people who were going to be in it. I just did my job to make it look the same as the design.

4- How was this work integrated into the urban space? What was the interaction that the inhabitants of this city had with your project? Did they participate in its creation?

Everyone who goes to that place takes photos, it is the star of the place.

5- Do you think it is important that the local people participate during the production of your work and that they become artists modifying the urban space or do you prefer to carry out your projects alone without anyone seeing you?

I am very detailed with my works, so only my assistants always participate.

6- According to you, what is the criteria that determines your Street Art work modifies the urban space and why is your work considered aesthetically well done?

I am very detailed. I do not consider that all the works look good on the street. Just a few of good artists.

7-What is the “historical future” of your work? Should we take care of it, preserve it and repaint it as if it were a museum’s piece of art? Or should it be allowed to age with the city itself?

Street art is ephemeral, I can paint and in time my work is covered. But some if I think they should be taken care of.

8- How does your work add value to the urban space in which it is produced?

Cause I do the best that I can.

9- What were the difficulties that you encountered during the completion of your work modifying the urban space?

Only the wall that was not in condition.
