Zoro - Danish Urban Art

Name and job: Zoro, graffiti writer.Crew: Copenhagen OldstarsCity/country: Copenhagen, DenmarkWhen did you start writing?I started writing in the early 80’s when I saw ”Style Wars” for the first time. I saw late it in the evening in the tv together with my dad. Everybody else in the house were sleeping. After that we both drawed sketches for a couple of hours before going to sleep – I still have the very first sketch from that evening – it says ”fresh” –after that I couldn´t stop sketching!What is graffiti for you?Graffiti for me is freedom. It doesn´t really matter if I do it alone or with good friends – it just gives me a break from everyday life, and it kind of recharges my ”batteries”. I love seeing the colors and the letters taking shape and when the piece is all done it gives my a feeling of pure joy and happiness – and I can stand there looking at it for a long time.What keeps me still writing? I had a break from graffiti from around 1991 – 2013 (I was in the military, got 4 kids, own company and a wife in that period) In 2013 I got in contact with one of my old friends from back in the days, and he got me started again – thx a lot for that! Now I’m just hooked again, and can’t – or won’t stop again!My style? If I have to descripe my style I would say it’s old-school. I like it kind of simply with recognizable letters and colors. I like when you can recognize a writers piece from a distance.(Copyright: Spraydaily.com)
