Nice work askew, i've always been a huge fan of your work. It's good to see New Zealand gettin the props that they've deserved for so long.

Man..thanks people...didnt expect such nice responses...I've tried my best to answer everybodies questions..

 

Is there a big scene in NZ? Just in Auckland?

 

Mainly in Auckland..But thats due to our population compared to the rest of the country. Auckland has a huge bombing/tagging scene...it's quite gangster really..But there are also a couple of hundred comitted writers or retired/or up and coming writers here, so there is a scene in Auckland..In other city centres here...Wellington and Christchurch you have a smaller but really dedicated scene....I would not wellington mainly for their sense of style..Its very traditional and one crew in particular SSS have great letter styles...But on the non-permission buzz, I give it up to BML crew...They do quite risky stuff...

In Christchurch you have Filth and TNA crews...Very innovative stuff...They are isolated from the rest of the scene so they have just invented styles and techniques that blow me away...this kid Fiasko in particular really does it for me....

 

I see a gasp there lol

 

Yeah he's a great writer too...he's been writing for about 10 years and really has a lot of street tags and very classic styled pieces around the city...When Can Two was here he was saying that he should change his name due to the other well known Gasp's around the world..he's considered it but old habits die hard I guess...

 

that is crazy luvin that askew and that dude driving that car plain thingo and tha rose shop legal is insane

Thanks..I'm happy with where my style is going because it is constantly evolving...You have to see a whole lot of them in chronilogical order to see it too...The character work on our walls is mainly painted by this kid Deus...He has mad skills..I cant express how much this kids blows my mind....I'll post some more stuff of his up real soon...

Haha! indeed...We actually had writers painting pieces out here as early as 1980...Thats a few years before they were painting in Europe..But it really died..Mostly kids got into tagging inspired by the LA style...Our scene went through a second infancy around 1993 and from there things have developed again...slowly..

 

nice work askew.i saw some of your stuff when a mate went over to nz for that big jam u had recently...

 

Yeah, thats the Disrupt The System event which is part of our Aotearoa Hip hop Summit...it was really great last year but knocked me for a six financially...Looks like it will happen again this year and hopefully I can iron out all the mistakes I made last time around...The dates this year are October 4th and 5th...

Loomit has played a very big part in making us think big...I've had the honour of painting with him during his last two visits and man...he just shook up my whole way of thinking about graffiti..Also Daim and Seak offered good guidance two...Daim showed me that you should take your time to paint every work the best you can and Seak showed me how far you can let your style travel off on a tangent..So, the German influence has been big..
