Bombing science posted an interview they did with the Danish street artist “lints” today.

BS: How do you feel about the current Street Art/ Graffiti scene both in Denmark and internationally? Do you feel that there are many bandwagon jumpers, fakes and chancers? Do you believe that the current popularity of all things spraypaint is a good thing?

Lints: The whole scene is currently booming globally. There’s a lot of new faces and there’s definitely a lot of talent, but it’s trendy at the moment and this means that the bandwagon is filling up. Surely there’s a lot of people who show potential, but it seems that many would stop pronto, if they knew for certain that in 5 years from now they wouldn’t have achieved much acclaim or recognition.
In order to maintain a certain quality to the whole scene it’s up to the individual artist to be their own worst critic and keep raising the bar in order to raise the level of the graffiti / street art scene. But it’s also up to galleries and the public to be critical and not just take everything in just because it’s “street”.
