It takes time. You start at age four for a kid that never gets to write the word ‘bitch’ on their house. I would say it takes about 2-5 years to learn to paint a letter and learn to fill this. At age 5 it is really easy and I am so thankful for the support from my dad who gave me and my sister and brother a hard time growing up. It was all done by our grandfather because they had to move around a lot because of their jobs and he is one of the smartest guys. We were always working for our parents and they didn’t know. My dad gave me my first brush and it took about a year to learn to write. That takes a while as well when you are learning something new. You must take time to see if what you are doing gets you good at it, otherwise you won’t make it. Then you need to keep practicing your abilities.
How long do you think it will take to make it with the business?
I’d say about 2-3 years in business is about right. There is always time when you have to look at your business and realize there is more talent in this world out there than you think, I am so blessed to have my dad and everyone who has helped me in this venture. Every time I do something new, everyone who has touched my life and helped me in any way ever since my brother came to visit me after he graduated high school has been very gracious and helpful, I just try to keep my feet on the ground and keep teaching kids how to write with their fingers that I can apply to the business. It will take a long time for graffiti to take off and I am just happy to be here to help kids learn all they need to know to be an artist.
Who are your biggest influences in graffiti art? Are there any other people or groups in the art field that inspire your work?
My biggest artists are David Graff and Frank “Smokey” DeLeon. Both are so talented and creative. We had so much fun learning to work together and have a lot of fun. Some people have made the term ‘graff’ synonymous with some people’s art but I would prefer to put a big emphasis on the artists that I consider to be part of the art and community of graffiti in Philadelphia. People have always been learning from the masters from different genres and backgrounds.
