I have always been interested in jails. After all, as canvas jails are just closed walls.
I did a project a few years ago in Rikers Island and it was a fascinating experience because nothing happens in a prison, and when those who are there are confronted with something new, it quickly becomes a highlight. They invest so much energy in it that it gets very emotional.
I was born and raised where lots of blockhaus was already there, but without tag or street art on it. They was like enormous rock virgin and at my 14 years old, we started , me and friends, to graff on it, to be proud or ashamed if it was not enough inventive or nice, well it’s like someone who started to learn walking among other who are too, it was fun, interesting, challenging and poetical too.
