around the common, very restricted selection processes of the art market and yes… that is definitely liberating. However, putting your art in the streets is also liberating from the expectations of the art world itself (ironically including the street art scene) because you get judged by normal people not only by other artists.

How much international street work do you do I came around a bit during the last month and whenever I hit a nice city I take my chance to hang a tape there. There are quite a few in Europe by now but since the project got so much momentum I´d love to expand to other continents. It´s just a great way to connect to cities and leave a footprint.

Ultimately – what is it about the street and the use of public space to place art that you find most meaningful

Streets are such a fun playground. We knew that when we were kids and every corner held an adventure for us. It´s great to find out that this hasn’t changed, that you can still sneak around and climb up posts, that you can still misuse objects and change them into something else. Before I had started this project I had forgotten the feeling that I could influence the world around me, but it is so much easier than one thinks.

What are your plans for the future Well, I just started a project which I want to expand a bit. It´s called “Stick Together” and it´s about sending out free tape-stickers to applicants from all over the world. They can choose where to stick them up in their hometowns. That’s a fun project and it became really important to me, not only because my artwork gets out there but also because all these random people get so enthusiastically involved in it, it´s a great team up.
