The “Three Aces” section is a retrospective section in which, through three pieces, we approach the criteria that each writer has regarding the quality of their own work. That is why in this section the participants usually are writers with a long trajectory, both in the interest that the whole of the work creates and for the value of the opinion based on extensive experience.In relation to this, classic characters like Kid Kash are suitable for this retrospective exercise.The Swiss writer is one of the big European names in terms of classic wildstyle and having his subjective selection of three pieces is a luxury.
“The idea was to paint the piece I was dreaming about at that time but was too toy to succeed.”
“I painted this piece in 2017 as a tribute to the writers and the styles that inspired me when I started in the early 90’s. I am very nostalgic of that special moment and I sometimes feel like a junkie who is always chasing that first high feeling when everything was new, exciting and misterios. The idea was to paint the piece I was dreaming about at that time but was too toy to succeed. I used only Sparvar like we did back then and looked back at some old mags, listened to old NTM, Beastie boys and Souls of Mischief and I really had a blast painting this one. I am still happy of the final result unlike most of my pieces.”
“I went to this spot with a sketch and a bag full of half empty cans. And that day everything worked out great”
“I went to this spot with a sketch and a bag full of half empty cans. And that day everything worked out great, the letters are simple with just enough funky connections and attitude. Although totally random, the color scheme is one of my personal favorite. And I had just enough outline color to finish. This spot is next to a forest and on a quiet day it is very relaxing and inspiring. It was painted in 2016 but it is still one of my favorite.“
“(…) I see myself as a BBOY wizard trying to decipher old scrolls to create some magic.”
“This is part of a big production we painted in 2018 with my 7$ brothers in my hometown. I often feel that all I do is revamp letters and techniques that have been done on a much higher level 40 years ago by some kids in New York. However if I ever invented something it is probably on that piece. I put together a few things I was testing in my recipe book and I think the result was interesting. I played with 2 layers that formed the letters and some extensions in a playful way. The old magic book and kangol hat is a metaphor for how I see myself as a BBOY wizard trying to decipher old scrolls to create some magic. More than the piece itself painting with Ryos and Serval is always fun and inspiring.“
