When I first saw a real “Hall of Fame” around 1995 in Mataró (which is a small industrial town north of Barcelona) with first class burners from Fasim, Heroe, Zeus/Dose I was completely blown away. I neither understood the meaning of those pieces nor the way these styles were painted so clean and crispy. That was the moment I knew I had been looking for this art my whole life.
Why Kid Crow?
At first I had chosen random names with no connection or specific meaning. Around 1999, I decided to search for a name that I can relate to. Crows are birds with an exceptional bad image, but if you look close they are very intelligent and highly developed. For me it is the same thing with graffiti writing. Bad image at first, but at a second glance you see the quality and beauty behind the art. Plus: You can find Crows everywhere on the planet.
In order to avoid confusion with already existing “Crow” artists I decided to add Numbers (e.g. 106) and around 2005 the “Kid” in Kid Crow was added.
The “Kid” stands for two aspects I find very important: First I don´t take myself too seriously and second I will always have the feeling to be still a kid growing up (remember the scene in Style Wars).
