What age did you get into graffiti? I started painting on walls at the late age of 29. Nearly 2 and a half years ago now.


Who is your favourite street artist? Buff Monster


How would you describe your style? A geometric conversation disguised as simple pattern and form run through an almost colourist approach to painting. Classic freehand can only application. End result feeling bright, trippy & transient. In two words, ‘Candied Cypher’!


What do you want people to feel when they look at your work? A desire for the unknown.


What do you think about London’s graffiti scene? I don’t think about it much, i pay more attention to the message in each piece of work.


What do you think about legal walls such as Leake Street Tunnel? They make a massive difference to so many people lives in such a good way. Mine included. All I can say is that without these spaces, London wouldn’t be the same.
