bjorn scribbles interview
BJORN is a street art new-comer has been widely accepted, by the street art powers that be, as an up and coming young artist.
We took the opportunity to ask BJORN a few questions while he was painting.
Read all about it below
When did you start drawing?
As long as i can remember I've always been drawing.
When did you realise you’re good at it?
I still don't think I'm good at it but I guess around 14/15 I realised I had a better understanding of it than most of my peers? I worked at out a lot, so many hours. I’d spend days at a time just drawing and painting. It was like being in a trance.
You’ve only started street art around half a year ago, I think I remember you saying, how do you find the street art community?
Yeah i only got into spray painting in early 2022, after meeting Dill at the GumsnTongue Sketchclub.
The street art community has given me everything I always thought art should be about.
Being out and about with your mates, getting together to paint and having a laugh in the process.
I like working in my studio, but this often gets very lonely.
Street art has given me a platform to be outside & talking to people while creating art at the same time - best of both worlds.
How does it feel to be up next to a Banksy in such an iconic spot?
A little surreal. I didnt grow up in the UK, but banksy is obviously one of those names that comes up no matter where you are in the world. It's a good feeling getting the chance to have a piece next to an artist that shaped your inspirations growing up. And the spot has this incredible history in the street art community. So many artists have painted here and of course it was the home of Black Rat Gallery.
Weird to think that Banksy had his first 'proper' exhibition in the arch in the Viaduct venue plus he used to stencil the walls under the bridge and sell the prints out of the back of his car. So yeah, it's inspirational to be starting out myself and have this opportunity to paint a spot with so much history in the street art universe.
You also know another street art legend, Vinnie Nylon, that we’ve also had the privilege of painting a wall here at E1 Brew Co.
We heard you spent a train journey to Penge with Vinnie.
What words of advice did he have for you?
Yeah that was a dope train journey, although it was a train coming back from Penge. He told me about growing up painting in the UK, all the way back in 1985 when he started out.
Honoured to have hang out with Vinnie on that trip, the guy is a proper legend in the game!
I don't know about advice as such, but he did do a little sketch in my blackbook that im very hyped about (cheers Vinnie).
Is there anyone you want to give a shout out to?
Big shouts to Dill, and all the guys at Global Street Art. Shouts to Gums And Tonge crew. Also shouts to Antony from E1 Brew Co for putting this all together and hooking up the spot.
Shouts to the reader for making it this far.
Thank you to BJORN from all at E1 Brew Co.
