- What do you write, and how did you come up with this name?
I write Disk. No deeper meaning behind it, though – I took the name in 1992, after I got busted for my previous name. It actually means ”dishes” in swedish, but I really hate to make the dishes, so … yeah, it’s just a nice combination of letters, I guess.
I’m in CWD (Compulsive Writing Disorder) and some waaaay old crews that don’t really exist anymore. Ancient, almost.
- How long have you been writing?
I did my first (kinda crappy) piece in 1984, but I didn’t really get up to speed until 1988. But then I stopped writing in 1995–’96 and started again in 2012.
- What country are you from?
I’m from Gothenburg – a salty, windy, cold and rainy city on the west coast of Sweden. Love it.
- Do you remember how you got started?
Yeah, I started as most 70’s kids in Sweden; Style Wars was on Swedish TV in 1984 and Subway Art popped up in bookstores around the same time, and a lot of us kids saw those, so we just went out and picked up any cans we could find and started to spray on walls and stuff. Great times!
- What makes you keep going?
Compulsive Writing Disorder, really.
- Describe your style in one word.
- Pieces, Throw Ups or Tags?
All good things comes in threes.
- Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus or Rihanna?
Ok, scratch what I said earlier, not all things comes in threes.
- What are you trying to gain from doing Graffiti?
Nothing really, I just have a really strong urge to paint on other peoples stuff.
- Are you in it for the fame or the fame?
Probably the fame, actually.
- Do you consider Graffiti – Art or Vandalism?
Both. It’s always been both. That’s the beauty of it.
- Who is your favorite writer of all time?
Can I pass on this? There are sooooo many…
- Favorite crew of all time?
Hmm, can’t really pick one here either, I love most of the old New York crews, but the crew that probably had the most influence on me as an european, has to be TCA, to be honest.
- Who comes first, hoes or bros?
Girls first. The walls and trains are always going to be there anyway, waiting.
Well, there’s been a lot of really weird situations on really weird missions, but the weirdest for me was in ’94, when I was painting under an old bridge in rural Exeter and suddenly I was rushed by a huge flock of sheep. They just kept pushing me out from under the bridge, so I actually had to leave as they just stopped and took the spot. Damn those sheeps.
I paint with everything really, but I’m actually a sucker for old european brands, like Auto K.
North Korea is best Korea.
- What is your favorite part of being a Graffiti writer?
Having a second nature. It’s almost as having a secret identity.
- What do you hate about Graff?
Nothing really. I love all application of a medium to a surface.
- Any advice for new writers?
Nah, enough with curling for the new generations – they have to find out things for themselves, as we all did. (But do look out for the sheeps, though…).
- Any last words or shout outs?
Thanks for asking me, guys. And a shout out to the rest of the crew: Sletz, Hose, Code26, Roxes, Waste and Voice. And a special thanks to Dudez, Dome, Hank, Dwais, Gouge, Just One and Tux. Cheers!
