1. Which qualities of personality help an artist to make art and which hinder?

For me, the most important qualities are punctuality and strategic thinking. If you know the goal, you will find the way. Punctuality simply weeds out people who are slow. You cannot work with them.

2. What is your favorite pastime besides art?

My hobby turned into a job, drawing became my vocation and purpose. After I discovered different interesting occupations. For example, DJing is not just putting tracks, for me it's about sharing my compilation, for example, a rare selection of 80-90s cuts. I collect retro tracks and have been a music digger since 2004. I'm also interested in chiptune — creating music on old-school synthesizers and gameboys. In general, the theme of retro music is very close to me — it stems from DJing. 

And another hobby is collecting art objects close to my heart: BE@RBRCK's, canvases by new wave artists, collabs.

3. Have you ever had a situation in your life that influenced your art positively/negatively? Or greatly changed your views on what you do?

If one is able to draw conclusions and analyze, every situation is either a reflection or a new experience. All of these things drive us and influence our views.

4. Who would you like to talk to of any person who has ever lived or is living now? Why this person in particular?

It would be interesting to talk to artists who influenced the formation of street art at a pivotal moment — 1988-1991. Haring, Basquiat, Warhol. Also I’m interested in the Spaniards of 1906-1907: Picasso at the time of the creation of The Girls of Avignon, Dali.

5. How does your art change the world, the culture, yourself?

While you are working on forming your own style of drawing, you are constantly searching, studying the history of patterns, textiles, avant-garde.

I change as I am constantly finding new elements and feeding off of them. Plus bringing it to the masses.

6. What do you think about the future of contemporary art?

The future of contemporary art is dual. On one side is commercialization and realization through cooperation with the powerful. On the other side is the rejected zeal to speak and show oneself. There is enough space for everything. We'll be watching. I continue to be active — both on the street and in commercial commissions. Balancing.

7. What do you think about the ups and downs of NFT? Do you have any NFT projects?

Digital paintings can be interesting, but I tend to lean towards more object-based art. Maybe it should take time for digitalization to pass — and we'll get electronic canvases, NFT museums. For now, I prefer to look at the classics. I don't have any projects of my own at NFT, but I do have a couple of old-school canvases. Please contact me!

8. What is the most valuable thing for you (in the world, in life, in creativity)?

I have my own pyramid of values (Staslow's Pyramid), in which all values and needs are clearly organized. The most important in it are three points: to be the pride of your parents (not the son of your mom's friend, but a well-formed whole adult or not so much), to be able to be a friend and appreciate friendship (not many people can truly be a friend) and to think outside the box.
