08. DNO_SLAPS

01. How would you define Dno_Slaps?

I would define myself as a learning artist, as I am self taught and feel I grow with my skills each drawing.

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

? I’ve been drawing on stickers for a year and a half now and it all started when I bumped into other sticker artists while I was just doodling which inspired me to really try out this new art style of graffiti type character on stickers.

03. Why do you attaching stickers?

I think using stickers is a fun twist on normal pieces using paper or canvases etc.

04. An interesting anecdote?

I would say just progression in art as I look back to my first few pieces and it looks like a 3 year old would have drew it. I would always look up how to improve and artists would always give the advice “just practice” which I really never understood as I never felt improvement until it just happened and I felt that improvement.

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

I see the sticker culture in a really bright colorful way. This is because all artists are different there are no characters that look the same however, all each others characters flow off each other no matter the theme. I’m not really sure if there is a subculture but do know there are many different crews or groups of artist to represent there own group.

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

? I believe most things are an expression of art. Stickers art is to me a 100% an art form and I feel it tries to spread creativity, communication and collaborations which arguably is the most valuable concept as people from around the world are collaborating and it keeps going in an art chain.

07. Anything new in mind?

? If we are talking art wise I may try to tackle the art style of the 1930s classic animations.

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

? I have stickers all around the world from UK, France, USA and India etc. I would just generally like to see my stickers all around with other artists adding on to it as I enjoy watching pieces evolve.

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

Don’t be afraid to ask for trades at the beginning and don’t feel that just because there are bigger artists doesn’t mean they won’t respond normally our community is very welcoming.

10. Someone who had been a reference for you?

so many artists inspire me I couldn’t write them all down from stickers artists to graffiti to classical etc.

11. Whom would you offer next month?

I would like to put cosmoss doodles on the next interview as I fell his art is amazing and truly deserves the spotlight.

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

I would like to say thank you for this opportunity I really do appreciate it!
