La SNCB soutient les jeunes créateurs

January 15, 2014

At the beginning it is a need to emerge. This is the crucial point. We all try to emerge in some how. And when you are young, this is more difficult because they don’t give you enough spaces. You are treated as somebody that still needs to create himself. So, the beautiful thing about graffiti is the arrogance of taking credit for what you do. […] I wanted to find something in which I was really GOOD and become the best in it - Mirics

We have many kinds of holidays. There is the holiday with the girl friend, the holiday with friends and the graffiti holidays. It means that you travel just to paint. […] And you are hosted by them. There is a lot of brotherhood. Even if you never met the person, you have the graffiti in common and that’s enough - Mirics

Beauty is something very subjective. There are some very well respected people in Rome that draw things that if you see this, you would say ‘ I can’t believe this’. But they are people that will never be crossed out. So, an ugly piece is not a piece that you reject. An ugly piece made on the hardest spot on earth i s the worthiest piece. So, beauty is something that a passer by can judge, not us - Mirics

Well… the thing is like that. Graffiti is the name. Advertising the name. A kind of advertising that is done without spending money, but only with guts. The more you risk, the more you have visibility and the stronger you are. You are in the game. The tag is the first step. The tag is the name, without the name you are nothing, nobody - Mirics

Some trains are kind of worth more. When writers meet they talk about different trains and different train yards where they’ve been. When you meet a new writer, you always have some places or trains to identify with and talk around. Local trains are generally more worth painting. For example the old Dutch banana train (the yellow one floor train called ‘doggie’), the Spanish ‘mirror trains’, Berlin’s yellow subway, Southern Sweden’s purple trains or Danish’s old red S-train. People used to go to Copenhagen just to paint that one. [Aso – 26, Stockholm]
