07.Chiek

01. How would you define Chiek?

Chiek Nulzevenéén is a fat chicken that wonders the earth. Its shape changes continuously and every artwork is unique. The stickers are mostly designed with help from my artist-friends so every sticker-edition has a different style. I also do a lot of graffiti.

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

It started 5 years ago, I was always doing graffiti but a character is more recognizable so I decided it was time to make a change to streetart/stickering.

03. Why do you attaching stickers?

Because you can paste them all day, everyday. Always carry them with me and when I find a nice spot, I claim it. But the best part is walking home drunk from the party and just fill streets with them.

04. An interesting anecdote?

Here are always people that are amazed by the person “behind the sticker”, I usually don’t tell people but when they see me pasting one and recognize it, sometimes it give you a kick.

I was in Thailand and in the Mac Donalds my character was recognized by a guy who lives in Holland too. Coincidence or not, it made my night even better.

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

There is definitely a subculture, I recognize people by their character or sticker, I don’t even know their real name but because you have a common hobby, they feel like friends.

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

The decoration of your city can feel liberating, to add something to the streets wich are static mostly is a beautiful thing to me. Seeing other stickers in my town, makes me happy.

07. Anything new in mind?

I’d love to do sculptures or make/install public statues, I was thinking hydrophobic art, art with moss…. Oh I have so many ideas.

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

The farthes place… that would be south-east Asia. I did a lot of work in Laos, Cambodia, Thailand an Malaysia… had a blast there. Daytime painting and bombing everything…

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

Be positively inspired by others but DON’T BITE or SNITCH. There is no excuse for that.

10. Someone who had been a reference for you?

REHF and Saip Sole are friends of mine who like to make their hands dirty stickering too…

11. Whom would you offer next month?

REHF, he’s always in for good quality art/bombing/photographing/urban-exploration etc.
