05. Creep Kollektiv

01. How would you define Creep Kollektiv?

We choose that name because that is what we are – just a couple of friendly creeps from the nighbourhood roaming the streets at night looking for beauty in unusual places.
Plus we like to draw creepy stuff.

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

We always had a passion for graffiti and streetart in general, but we first started to contribute in 2016.
The first things we put on the streets were stricktly painted on fabric because we didn’t know how to get ahould of foil back then.
But with time we begun to experiment with different materials.
Eventually we got some stuff printed to send around in stickertrades.

03. Why do you attaching stickers?

Stickers are a way to communicate with people without meeting them and to leave a mark on the streets, to become part of the urban collage and bring some colour into the world, little by little.

04. An interesting anecdote?

Before we started to engage with streetart we lived rather secluded and didn’t have much contact to people outside our small group and we were all very shy to show our stuff because it always felt out of place.
Through streetart we connected with so many talented and inspiring people online and offline to learn from and be creative together.

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

It sure is.
There are so many people out there who love to collect and swap stickers and so many talented and passionate artists who choose that medium to express themselfes.
There are also a lot of people who like to go on picturehunts and take photos of stickers and streetart to post them online. In many citys you can go on organised streetart-walks and countless exhibitions and even stickerfestivals and stickermuseums.
It’s a very big scene.

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

Maybe not every sticker per se is a piece of art, but there are so many incredibly detailed handcrafted stickers out there on the streets that took a lot of work, time and talent to create. It’s like with every other medium.
Everything you create with passion is art, but we don’t like the severity that comes with that term.
We don’t consider ourselfs artists, we don’t intent to create art, we just like to draw and play around and have some fun.
With our stickers we want to motivate the peolple to take a second look at all the hidden things around us.

07. Anything new in mind?

So many ideas, so little time.
But we plan to make more 3D-Obects in the future.

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

One thing is for sure, our stickers traveled more than we ever did and can be found in many places around the world as far as russia, apan and the US.
But even though that is very exciting for us, we mostly like them here in our city where we can see them. They are not only a way to communicate with the world but also to communicate with ourself.
The streets are our diary.

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

Just do what your love an have some fun.

10. Someone who had been a reference for you?

There are way to many to count.
Everything and everyone is an inspiration.

11. Whom would you offer next month?

We suggest the lovely and talented @metraeda because she deserves more recognition.

Do you have anyting to say? Greatings and thank you?

Thanks for having us and greetings to the stickerworld, especially the d’town-crowd.
