What inspires you?
I’ve liked manga since I was a kid. That’s what made me start drawing. Most of my inspiration comes from manga.
What’s your favorite “playground”?
The wall is my playground, for sure. I always dream of painting bigger and bigger walls.
What equipment and techniques do you use?
To paint on the walls, I mostly use paint and brushes, but sometimes spray paint as well. For illustration, lately I only use the iPad. It’s very handy, but I’m also trying to go back to pencil and paper or canvas.
What’s the most important project you’ve worked on? Why is that?
Last year, I worked with Tumi on a travel collection with suitcases, bags and luggage tags. I was very happy to travel with my own suitcase…
Who are the main artists who inspired you in the beginning?
Miyazaki Hayao: his animated films showed me another world.
Tim Burton was my mentor on the dark side…
What are the main artists that you are thrilled about today?
The same ones as before.
In your opinion, does urban art have an impact on people’s lives?
What I like about street art is that it’s aimed at the public. Anyone can see it and touch it or even paint over it.
It is not necessary to be a “professional artist”. You don’t need to be a professional artist. You can make up your own story based on the street art you have seen and which inspires you.
It can happen at any time in your life and one day you find yourself walking past your own mural every day on your way to work or on your way home.
Do you think your work questions society? In what way?
I don’t really think so. I just do what I like to do, and if it makes people happy, I’m happy, too.
The Drip’in concept is to bring urban art into the home. Our emblematic object is a white train, which we leave freely in the hands of the artists. Why did you choose to collaborate on this “Cover It Project”?
As I said, I’m happy that my work is making its way into someone’s life. I hope to cheer people up
