“For more than 10 years, graffiti in all its facets and controversy is an inherent part of my life. As soon as I be-came part of the graffiti culture, I found myself facing a flood of disaccord and conflict. In graffiti, no grey exists – only black and white. As a graffiti writer, I was insulted, praised, roared at, gazed at in silence, I was paid and had to pay, I stole and was stolen from, I came across comprehension and incomprehension – from both: law-abiding citizens and fellow graffiti writers. While politicians enact and tighten laws, tabloids complain about tags and house owners are angrily cleaning their walls, graffiti writers elect their kings and queens, celebrate calligraphy as a culture and adore locations other people anxiously avoid. Two worlds that exist side by side but rarely meet.
In the streets, I write my name and I celebrate the beauty of letters and colours. In my art, I try to connect the contrasts I come across while doing so. I work with my favourite tools – spray cans and letters – but I connect them with a medium that every person considers as pre-cious, clean and exclusive and thereby I question the notions of both sides with irony. “(MadC/March 2010)
