Off The Wall

Undercover Alias View

Bag on back, spray and stencils in hand, black and red finger nails concealed under a long sleeved hoodie, lookin highly suspicious(and that was just The Collective Team) we co-ordinated an after dark meet with the elusive Alias.

RD: Hey Alias, we know your from Berlin, did you go to art college there?

No I was never on a school art course, and I was never happy in school
and without high school it is very difficult to get into an art school.

RD: Your into stencil art, have you tried any other forms of expression?

I really like abstract images, structures and dripping paint.
It would be great, if I could connect it into my stencil work,
also I create colloge with old advertising posters.

RD: Is there a place in Berlin where the authorities are less likely to throw
you in a cell for putting up graffiti.

No, not for graffiti! Perhaps in the government district of Berlin.
But it won'l be free soon.

RD: What projects have you got coming up?

In 2 days(on now) we open a group exhibition in West Berlin Gallery with a colorful mixture of urban art...later some other group shows and a art fair in Munich -and I'm looking forward to an exhibition in Copenhagen in September! And an illegal exhibition in Berlin this summer...
but now I can´t say anything.

RD: If you could change something in your life what would it be?

I want stop smoking a lot of weed ...perhaps it could be good for my art ah, a bit more of art anyway -and a better English would be great!

RD: Yep, might help you focus more dude...ha ha.

RD: Have you got a specific spray paint that you like using the most?

Yes, Belton Molotow Premium...
Mainly black, white and grey with one signal colour.

RD: Do you skateboard?

Yes, started at 16 - but never very professional
but I am a big fan of the skateboard scene

RD: Xbox 360 or PS3

No. Photoshop! But ten years ago it was playstation & Tony Hawk.

Ha ha its been a hoot dude, great to meet you. Keep doin what your doin! Thanks from The Collective.

Danke für deine Zeit Kumpel, alles Gute aus dem Kollektiv.
