SOUTHWORTH

Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently

 

I was born in Spokane, WA in 1988. I currently live in Portland, OR

 

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures

 

My older brother drew a lot with me growing up. We would practice copying cartoon characters from comic strips. When I met kids that were writing graffiti early in high school my interest in art really began to blossom.

 

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding

 

I'd say Jamie Thomas. I grew up watching him in ZERO video parts, he would go so huge. I skated a lot more when I was younger, now I push a board only when I need transportation.

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

I really dig MARS 1, Gustav Klimt, ICH...but really I couldn't pick a favorite, it's too hard.

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing

 

Rapping, making music, shredding pow, smoking blunts.

 

 

Who are your biggest influences

 

Phonte Coleman, Lek and Sowat, my grandfather (Rest in peace).

 

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

Aerosol, paint pens, micron pens, acrylic.
