Mike Watt – Interview

by

Mike Watt is an Australian artist and illustrator based in Sydney, NSW. VNAussie, Damian Wardle, recently caught up with him and got him to spill the peas about all things Mike…

DW: Who is Mike Watt? How do you describe your style?

MW: I’m an artist and illustrator from Sydney. I’ve been drawing and painting walls for quite a while but I was a bit of a hermit until a year or 2 ago. I’d say my style is kind of gritty and ugly, normally showing characters with lots of characters that have lived an interesting life.

Jun Inoue – KUH at Backwoods

by

Jun Inoue was raised in regional Kanagawa, Japan, where he studied Shodō (traditional Japanese calligraphy). His grandfather, a Zen Monk, became a major influence on his philosophy and aesthetic vision. Upon moving to Tokyo, the energy of the city’s underground – jungle, hip-hop and most importantly, graffiti – played a major role in further shaping his aesthetic development.
