Mindre Bates interview

Bates

Hvis nogen skulle have overset det så har Bates lagt DUBCNN‘s artikel vedrørende Bates udstilling i Oktober på sin blog.

Hvordan synes du udviklingen på den danske graffitiscene har været?
– God, men jeg synes nu stadig, der er en håndfuld old schoolers, der laver de mest interessante ting. Men der er mange der er på vej, så det ser lovende ud, når sådan nogen som os går på pension, haha. Vi har toge der kører med pieces, gaderne er bombet og hall of fames fyldt med burnere og der er masser af ting langs linjen…

At the moment we are cooking on fresh new projects with our friends scheduled to start by the beginning of 2010. One of these kicks off on december 1st 2009. In a few days we start to upload one piece of Swet every day, due the period of 100 days. In summary we talk about 100 pieces in all done with the new Swet 100 Traffic Red 400ml. Every single day until march 10th 2010 Swet will be out for painting (what he do anyways) and the updates can be seen at our special SWET goes RED section….watch out, further infos and upcoming projects coming up soon.

For me it’s a challenge to see if I can find the time to paint even more without neglecting work or my family. And of course see what I can do with my style when all the pieces have to be different and with only one fill in colour to work with.
