EP 129 : RAWS
"I like to use warm colours because I want to create a warm, a positive feeling about graffiti"
For some people, turning your hobby into your career can suck all of the fun and passion out of it. For others, it allows them to do what they love every day and adds an extra level of excitement and motivation. RAWS stands confidently in the second group. As a teenager he discovered his love for graffiti. At university he studied graphic design. But it wasn’t until after finishing his studies that he realized his true calling fell somewhere between the two. By blending his design and graffiti aesthetics RAWS has created a specific and unique artistic voice that can be appreciated by people across a wide spectrum. His decision to shift his focus from commercial work to fine art has proven to be a wise one with galleries and collectors seeking him out and solo shows lining up one after another.
