Meet graffiti writer SEMOR
Why did you start writing?
When I was a kid I wrote with chalk in my room. I wrote letters in different styles onthe wall, but I didn ́t have the faintest idea it was called graffiti or writing. In 1992 mysister showed me the film “Style Wars”. I love thatmovie–so muchcolours andstyles.
What is your best memory connected to graffiti?
There are a lot of good memorys, but I would say the best, that you meet alwaysgreat artists. And of course…the travels. I never ever thought Ican go to differentcountries just because of Writing.It ́s not only leaving a mark in the country…it ́smore about getting connected to the locals.
Tell me about the first time you remember painting graffiti ?
It was an unbelievable feeling. I got my first can from a DIY store and I just had acouple of standardcaps. The paint was dripping, but I felt like this will be a big part inmy life. There was that wall close to my village where I crew up. It belong to a factoryand nobody was really interested what was going on that wall. So it used to be mylittle playground.
What is the single most important thing when it comes to graffiti?
It is like a self-cleaning process.Express myself.Paintinghas something meditativefor me. Just being in themoment
Three best advises for new graffiti writers?
- Respect the oldschool as we did. And
- There is a difference between TikTok and RealLife.
Don’t measure people by the number of followers they have. Try to acquire a good filter and listen to your inner most. So focus yourself on what you really love.
- Listen to people who are respecting you. Get surrounded by positiv vibes and positiv human beeings. Life is too short for loosing time with wrong people.
Getting in touch with other writers and getting teached by them. Finding my ownstyle…getting influenced. It ́s an all time process…
We asked SEMOR to make a GraffitiBible tag in his style
