ARTcrylic Sessions: Ikaroz testing the new ACRYLIC paint & markers pt1.

IKAROZ from Stockholm, Sweden worked 3 days in our Montana Laboratories with a lot of different techniques and tools like brushes, markers, primer, spraycans and solvent. Using them on canvas, wooden plates and other undergrounds. What a great and impulsive mixed media session! Interview, Video and more pictures after the jump:

1.Can you tell us something about your person, your background and history?
————————————————————————————————————————————————–
My Name is Ikaroz from Stockholm, Sweden. I did my first piece with a friend: we used 2 cans we had racked in school. That was back in 1985, I remember it said “Bozoo” and was done with a def boom box – Just red and yellow! But when I started really with graffiti was around 1990.

2.What are your favorite tools ? Is there a difference between indoor and outdoor work?
————————————————————————————————————————————————–
I work with a lot of different tools, combining and customizing them, but mostly I can say I use brushes, markers, spraycans and my hands! There´s not a big difference for me where I work, outside or inside. Painting outside gives me more the feeling of total freedom but for me its same-same, I just love the contrast. When I´m tired of my studio work, then I go outside for painting and vice versa.

3.Your feedback on the new ACRYLIC Markers?
————————————————————————————————————————————————–
The Markers working great! What i really like is also the fact that you can mix your own colors and use them both with markers and brushes. Also the possibility to use the same colors from the Montana Gold Spraycan and find out new ways of work.

4. Would you like to share with us your latest / upcoming projects?
————————————————————————————————————————————————–
I just trying to hang on there, work with my own art, graff, workshops, commission work, sketches and tags. Of course mixing it all up with some travels, my friends, nice food/drinks and everything that makes my life super! I think that 2012 will be the best for me ever!
