Each month we’re bringing you an interview from a graffiti writer somewhere around the globe..
This Month we introduce…. RASK!
” I write Rask. Been writing that since around 1990 and did my first piece on the well known Bridge of Peace in Drogheda Ireland August 1987 when it was bare concrete..
I rep for several crews my main crew is TDA klann started in Drogheda in 1991 ,current active line up is Maser, Sums, Rask, Sek2, Gone and Tiws.
I also rep WO which is a fun crew with a growing membership.. RTM ,cork based crew with global members, TDS from Belfast, and from New York AK , DWB and TNB.
I never knew when i started i would still be so passionate about graff 23 years later.. I paint more now than ever and don’t see myself slowing anytime soon.
The first wall was Keen, Mode2, Stylo and Prime and we have been running it annually ever since with some major players in the graf scene passing thru over the years. The main idea was to help grow the irish scene, educate ourselves by working with top international writers and make the globe aware ireland has a scene!
“That’s still the plan today as we approach year 16 and i don’t even feel half done!”
My style i feel has had a slow and steady progression ,I’m definetly guilty of repitition but i feel every piece i do i’m refining the style more an improving the overall piece .
“I try to pay homage to original New York wildstyle and this has been my goal since the very start of my career while putting ,my own twist on it..”
“I’m still searching for the perfect piece but everytime i finish a piece I’ m already thinking about how to improve the next one..”
I’ve enjoyed all the adventures mostly good, some bad, that graff has brought me on , the travels and friends and aquaintances i’ve made over the years and even the odd enemy .hate is love too…Peace.
