One of the show stoppers of “Outside In 2”  is Wand.  He was able to capture movement and airiness in his whimsical pieces, a tough job to accomplish with spray paint.  We sat down with him and got in his head.

Fresca , a peruvian restaurant. Lomo saltado.

 

If you could make a dream team of graffiti artists to paint a wall, who would you want?
The wall wouldn’t be big enough , all my crew members (ICP and TM7) and friends and legends that passed away.
