My graffiti art is strictly about educating people about and enlightening them. I see a lot of things happening in the environment, I feel like I’m in the right position to like educate people through my art and my craft. This is Mushin, this is where I stay and I feel like there’s a lot going on there, I need to like inspire people with my craft and that’s exactly what I am doing here”
