How long have you been making stickers?
Off and on since 94 with KODA / ADOK Crew, now I am solo, STC “Slap The City”.
What inspired you to first start producing stickers?
Other artists, graffers.
What role would you say stickers play within the greater scope of art?
Regardless it’s art. You got color, creativity, and context. It’s a new form of art and stickers have been around forever, regardless if it’s graffiti or not.
Anything with adhesive backing. The popular USPS mailer label 228, Avery labels of all sizes, Hello My name is labels.
What are some of your favorite places to put up slaps?
Stop light posts and street signs since people look at them all the time. Anywhere that sticks.
What is the longest one of your slaps has survived in the wild?
2 months +
Have you ever had any run-ins with the law due to your stickering?
Never. Got to be quick and sleek.
What other artists inspire you?
All the OGs like Picasso, Dali, and then the graff legends all influence me and my styles.
How many stickers have you produced to date?
Oh man too much.
Is stickering about quantity or quality?
Quality, then comes quantity. Make it good then make a lot of it.
Do you collect and/or trade slaps with other artists?
Since Instagram it’s easier to trade now, and yes I would like too, but have not got any from the guys that traded with me.
Do you have a message that you are trying to convey with your slaps?
No messages, all design and tags.
Slaps are the new wave and it’s part of graffing, plus its a lot of fun.
What is the best way for people to follow your work?
My crew from KODA, ADOK, and my boy Shorty who is a great artist.
