I like to keep archives because I buff over my own work sometimes and can’t exactly remember what I’ve created.
2006 was the first time I could photograph my work, it goes back to then.
Part of the point of this archive is for me to remember what I’ve created over the years, having taken in more than my fair share of fumes my memory of what I’ve done is not that great.
At least when i got the box I was outside but that didn’t happen until 2010 and was spraying aerosol in a small room up to that point, not something i would recommend now.
And yeah, I started by spraying walls (2002 was my first hit), what little anarchist wouldn’t but I guess I was just too lazy to keep on doing that, takes planning and people (me and people don’t get along) so I quickly decided to spray on canvas, the theory being, those can be sold.
