Graffiti artist AMIT 2.0 continues his NAMEDROPPING project with another nice exchange work, where he takes the challenge to spray the paint partner´s name and the other way around.
This time the guest is graffiti artist BUMS with whom he met in Mannheim, Germany.
Together they painted another wall for AMIT´s ongoing exchange project „namedropping“, here is the obligatory interview and photos below:
Hi „Bums“, how relevant is style writing for you?
“Nice colors!”, “What a great location!” or “Great photo!” may taste like satisfaction at first glance. At second glance, however, they taste bland. It’s all about the style for every writer. And that is irrevocably linked to the outline. I love drawing outlines. For me, everything else is an accessory and a means to an end in order to be able to draw outlines. For me, good style means a fresh outline.
What do you think of the namedropping project?
The idea isn’t new. However, I like the consistency with which Amit drives this thing forward. And I’m always happy to see which grenades he suddenly pulls out of the hat. I think the spots play an important role in this. If the project were always to take place in the same place in any hall, it wouldn’t be half as attractive.
Did the “new” combination of letters go well for you?
Surprisingly good. I like three of the four letters. Only: The i does not exist in my letter universe because it offers so few possibilities. I had a sketch in mind. However, the picture on the wall afterwards looked different than the picture in my head. So almost everything as always.
Your opinion on graffiti and social media?
I have an insta account myself. But I’m getting annoyed by it. I’ve often annoyed myself in the past for wasting an hour or more flipping through endless posts. In the end there is always so much scrap that the few highlights do not justify the high expenditure of time. So I deleted the app from my phone. I’m all the more looking forward to the new neon gray and the overrated.
