The reason to choose this TAG, is to hope that both in their lives or works, all retain a sharp edge, do not agree, do not live. The beauty of the rose is also long in the thorns, the Bible also has a phrase “Road in the thorns”.

I don’t know if I have a message to say, but for me the beauty of graffiti is that those who get it, get it. it’s a tag, a throwie or a piece. I think your saying to the viewer…”you might not know who I am, but now you know my style”.

For me Alicante has always been strong if you are speaking of graffiti, besides, nowadays, there is a lot of people from Alicante painting in all Spain, in general I am proud of the level of my city.

The motivation when you are 13 years old is only to see your name everywhere. I think it’s a much more social activity that has little to do with art, except in what refers to the style of your letters obviously. (…) I’ve always considered your tag as your name on street, and the acronym of your group as the family name. A name and a family that you have chosen and that no one has imposed on you. (…) I did not live graffiti as a hobby on Sundays, I lived it as an authentic adventure with my “street family” as something that was part of my life day to day.

Nothing specific. I like when people smile looking at my pieces, but my graffiti don’t have a real message. I do them for myself.
