05.Bheo Mushroom

01. How would you define BHEO mushroom?

I would define BHEO as a weird mix of 4 letters randomly picked out of the alphabet. I see myself as a creative person with a little weird way of thinking about some things.

02. How did all begin? How long have you been with this?

I have been doing street art since about five years now, back in time I had a different name and that went kind of wrong… I ended up ruining a lot of properties and vehicles with my “art” Then I decided to start with a clean slate.

BHEO was born, I started with sticker art, then I wanted to make bigger artworks then just little tiny stickers so I started to make stencil pieces in canvas. But after a year of making stencil pieces all over the place and exhibiting a bit I wanted to make bigger drawings without stencils and that is where my mushroom character was born.

03. Why do you attacching stickers?

Like I said, I started to put up stickers in the streets about 5 years ago. Back then I was writing a different name and I had a very different approach to street art.

I was this kid tagging all over the place and ruining loads and loads of properties. Then I came across a lot of nice sticker artists and I started focusing on stickers, canvasses and murals only. No more property damaging for me!

04. An interesting anecdote?

One day I was walking to the graffiti store in Amsterdam to pick up some new paint, off course while walking I was outing my stickers everywhere. A man shouted “HEY” and I scared a bit, the man walked up to me and asked me for a couple of my stickers since he still didn’t have mine.

05. How do you see the sticker culture? Is there really subculture?

I think the street sticker culture is quite big in street art, even the really big artists often put a couple stickers in the streets because it can be done very fast and they are pretty long lasting.

06. Do you considerer this movement like an art? What do you try to transmit with this?

One word, YES! Making stickers is like make a mural, but then allot smaller and you can put it up anywhere you want. I call them: tiny pieces of sticky art.

07. Anything new in mind?

Of course! I am always busy with new things and ideas, currently I am working on a batch of very small artworks to be framed in very small wooden frames.

08. Farthest place where do you have gone? Where would you like see your stickers?

My stickers are all over the world already! I really enjoy travelling myself so wherever I go I bring my little sticky friends! From Amsterdam to Miami and from Miami to Thailand

BHEO is all over the world! There are always places I would like to see my stickers! For example on top of the maunt Everest! That would be great!

09. Some advice for the people are beginning in this art?

Just do what you like best! If you have a style of are and everyone tells you it looks like shit just keep on doing it! You are the person making the statement!

10. Someone who had been a reference for you?

No, not specially.

11. Whom would you offer next month?

NiX should be up next! NIX is a very good friend of mine and he is a very nice fellow who makes super fine stencils with a lot of detail!
