The Uppercup event is raising money for animal welfare, why is this a cause that you wanted to support?
Humans have got highly evolved brains and opposable thumbs and they cant even look after the welfare of humans properly, what chance do animals have?

Did the fact that this piece was for a major cause change they way you looked at and approached the project?
Not really, for this one I let the work be for the sake of the work and hopefully the cause will benefit as a byproduct,

Can you tell us a bit about your piece?
It’s kind of a condensed-for-cup version of some colour and technique ideas I was using at the time.

How do you think urban art plays a part in raising awareness for causes such as animal welfare?
I don’t think its necessarily integral, but it anything that allows you to make a statement like art gives you a chance to be an agent for your message.

How did you decide upon your name / tag?
Read the news on any given day of the week.


Who or what motivates you?
A morbid fear of wasting time.

Probably Jim Lee.

Ricochet by Reso and the instrumentals from the new Method Man record.

Neil Buchanan
