Location:

What inspired you to first start making stickers?
I first was making stencils and painting them on canvas, but one day I was watching some video on stencils and I found the sticker art world and started making stickers.
How long have you been at it?
I’ve been making stickers for about a year and a half now, but Ive been making stencils for longer then that.
What role do you think stickers play within the greater scope of art?
I think that stickers in the street make people see art more and they really might appreciate it more than if they had seen it in a gallery or art fair. People may become more aware of art through stickers and street art.
