EP 130 : MR PARADOX PARADISE
"It all starts with a pencil, a piece of paper and a feeling"
It is not at all an over exaggeration to say that Paradox (Mr. ParadoxParadise) is one of the most prolific, most unique, and most visible graffiti writer in Berlin, a city full of prolific and unique graffiti writers. Because of that however, they are extremely secretive and anonymous which is why this episode of VantagePoint is so special. Paradox exploded into public consciousness through the development and implementation of a special technique of painting graffiti that involves repelling down from the roof of a building and hitting parts of walls that are otherwise completely inaccessible. Because of this special (and insane) technique his graffiti is vertical rather than horizontal which only adds to it’s uniqueness. Furthermore, the lettering style Paradox has developed is unlike any other. What appears to most people as a long lost alien language only reveals itself as letters and words to those who take the time to decipher the code. Recently Mr. Paradox has branched into new methods of output including apparel and fine art sculptures as well as self producing and directing a new feature length film documenting his story (four years in the making) titled “SPIRITUAL LETTERS”. It was an extreme honor and thrill to finally get to talk to the person behind the mask for this VantagePoint exclusive.
