Zuzu : HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN AUSTIN?
Truth : My wife and I came to Austin in the summer of 2010. We were teaching overseas before that.
Zuzu : WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO START CREATING ART?
Truth : As a kid I was a massive fan of G.I.Joe. I was seriously obsessed. So after watching the cartoon I would study my action figures and try to create battle scenes of my own.
Zuzu : HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PAINTING?
Truth : I got into painting in college. I didn’t really care for it before then. And shortly after I began experimenting with spray paint and paint markers.
Zuzu : ARTISTS DO YOU LOOK UP TO?
Truth : Sam Flores, Etam Cru, ARYZ, Os Gemeos, Meggs,Tristan Eaton, Saner, Mr. Thoms, London Police, Banksy, Herakut, Nosego, Nychos and of course the Spratx family!!
Zuzu : ANY ADVICE FOR OTHER ARTISTS OUT THERE?
Truth : Be inspired by other artists, but don’t be discouraged. I often get caught up thinking my work isn’t as good as the art that’s around me and/or on the web. But we are only going to improve if we stay hungry!! Keep pushing to get better!
