fosAreet im FOS, im a 23 year old writer from Newcastle in England. I have been writing for a few years now and have become more and more recognised in north east for my original handstyle and insane animals that i like to design. I prefer bombing trains although any canvas will do, so i supose ... This is me...

How did you get involved in the graff culture?
I was waiting for a train when i was about 15 and when it pulled up it had been destroyed with throw ups and dubs. As soon as i seen it i wanted that to be my tag across tye carriage.

What is the Newcastle Upon Tyne graff scene like, in your opinion?
Pretty awesome if im honest. The whole of tyne and wear is cut up by a massive train system called the metro which created the perfect canvas for your art

Does your tag "FOS" have any hidden meaning?
Yeah, it stands for Free Our Souls

How would you describe your style?
Very cartoony bubble and crazy liquid writing. I like to see how warped i can get the writing.

What's the most interesting project you have worked on?
I got to do a huge piece at the Sage in Gateshead. It was my fist ever attempt at characters so it was an interesting learning curve

What artist/s have influenced you?
I love throw ups so id say my most popular artist is CAP from NYC. Old school style. But i also had a lot of inspiration and help from FOREN and RAIN

Tell us something that people don't know about you?
I started off as a stencil artist

What do you listen to when you paint?
Usually devlin, he makes awesome british urban grime which gets you right in the mood for painting!

Do you have any advice for artists wanting to get involved in the graff scene?
Start small, you will be a toy for a long time but its all one big learning curve, listen to other artists that you meet on they way as every writer has some useful input they can give.

What does the future hold for FOS?
Im looking to take a trip to the states and maybe do a few colab's whith some other artists ive got to know over there and generally just turn this shit up a level!
