When me and my crew started streetbombing, nothing much was
happening in Hamburg in that direction.
RTA crew hadn't been
active for a longer time, and there was nothing new to see from
There were several reasons why we started to specialize
on streebombing: We found it too boring to go painting on the
line, since everybody was doing it and pieces on the line weren't
noticeable anymore because everything was bombed so completely.
We didn't want to cross, because we think only toys cross. Bombing
trains was mega-in in Hamburg at the time (93/94), but we weren't
really down for it because trains got buffed too quickly at
the time. Contrary to the present day painting trains was much
easier then bacause trainbombing had almost disappeared after
RTA had stopped doing it.
We were doing trains at the time, but
the buff robbed our motivation. We didn't want to take the risk
just for a few photos.
Visiting Berlin and the growing positive
feedback we got for our actions led to streetbombing being our
main focus. It's a really good feeling to do a piece in a spot
that gets seen by hundreds of cars and pedestrians per hour
during daytime. Even at night you will probably be seen.
streetpieces get painted under extreme pressure, you'll have
to do an unclean but complicated style, or do a clean but simple
style. With time, your style automatically develops in a direction
that allows you to do fast and complicated pieces. Generally,
there are a few rules to follow for your own safety, especially
in streetbombing. Most important is to know your abilities and
never underestimate the cops.
Streetbombing is the best way
to present your skills to as many writers as possible, since
anyone spends more time on the streets than on rails or train
