The guys at Spray Daily have dropped another killer interview, this time with none other than Sydney's Retro KGB. A long term member of one of Sydney's most notorious and stylish crews, Retro has his own particularly legible yet very unique style which has graced the walls and trains of Sydney and beyond for some years now. His constant style development, killer colour choices and weird sense of humour make him one of our favourites, and after checking out the full interview over at Spray Daily, you'll realise why. Check out a few snippets from the interview below, along with just a few of the many burners inside and of course, check Retro on Instagram @blogthief
What do you do when you’re not painting?
"I sell calippos and coconut water on bondi beach." - Retro
When did you start writing?
"Received my pen license in ’06, 10 years after pac died #rip" - Retro
What’s graffiti for you?
"The word graffiti derives from the Italian word “graffio” which means “a scratch”. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about that every time I paint, which is why I like to scratch the wall a little before I start. For tradition’s sake." - Retro
Tell us about your city, how is life and graffiti there?
"The baby boomers are slowly destroying the most beautiful city in the world. They dont believe in coexisting with other generations, their art is bland, their world view is restrictive and the only hope for our city is their impending death." - Retro
What trends are you seeing now in the graffiti world that you don’t like?
"Words starting with R, Arrows, Bevels, Top Knots and the Dad Bod." - Retro
