Hello and welcome back to the. F24 podcast.. my name is David and in what were normal times, I invited creatives over to my studio in north Acton to have a conversation about their lives and interactions with London, culture and creativity.
But we are what, 5 weeks into this worldwide lockdown.. the maddest time of most of our lives so I’m at home like the rest of you so decided to make this thing worldwide.
I hope you’re all safe and well, the numbers we are seeing daily are crazy, quiet overwhelming but one thing for sure is that we’ve shown how much we can do for each other not what they can do for us. We’ve stood up and looked out for each other and helped where possible.. That’s love, on a massive scale.. that’s gonna do some dope stuff for us in the future, let’s keep it up.
This week, well last week I had this conversation with New Zealand graffiti stalwart Vents from RTR crew Auckland. We had a dope chat, me kinda chatting into the future as he’s 13hrs ahead. We cover loads, what it was like where he grew up, what the kind of graffiti he saw growing up and his first feelings of notoriety when he placed his first words on a wall and drawings on an arcade game. We talk about his route into painting, when the right time arose and the commitment he put to it. He tells us about some NZ history, the crews and paintings that were about, the name he started with, travelling and a story about London’s very own @meanpfb. It was a dope chat, a privilege. This is some of Vents RTR’s Auckland, culture and creativity story, check him at sub_automic whilst you listen, enjoy this is f24.
