Indole: Your style is so unique and not like much of the graffiti you see or
what people associate with graffiti. What influences your style of artwork?

SEAK: I made my incapilities to my advantages, for example not doing straight crisp lines to get an honest soft roundish stroke in my way of painting.
Basically accepted my personality and my popcultural background as part of my identity, and were honest enough to show it. And mix that with the skills i was really good in. Like doing fadings, playing with light and colours,
I was searching in my own personality for my content. The toys i played with as a kid, all the years playing computer, a bit of biting other rolemodel writers in inthe beginning, and later conciuosly refelecting the zeitgeist/ contempoary vibe of the society i and we were living in.

Indole: When you were young did you see yourself as being an artist when you
got older or did you have other aspirations?

SEAK: I guess i valued my creative output with the same importance like for example an maurizio cattelan does too. I just had different names for it. Instead of using the word „visual language“ i would have used the word „style“, to give you a very easy example.

Dieses Tryptichon entstand auf einer Burg in Bozen Tirol.
Genauer gesagt im Messner Mountain Museum, auf einer privaten Veranstaltung eines Sammlerpäärchens.
Die meisten Gäste kamen im eigenen Flugzeug, Reinhold Messner war wohl noch der bodenständigste Entrepreneur neben mir auf dem Abend.

Nachdem ich zu einer GruppenAusstellung nach Mailand eingeflogen war, habe ich noch eine Arbeitsreise durch italien nachgelegt. Dabei entstanden diverse SEAK styles, so wie einzelne SEAK Buchstaben Satelliten in Padova, Udine, Trieste, Triveso, Padova, und einige in Rom.
