Apose was nice enough to answer a few questions I sent him & here is what he had to say!
1. Who are you? – What do you do and how long have you been doing it?
Whats up, i write Apose been painting for about 3 years was messing around for 2 years before i really got into IT
2. What crews do you rep?

3. What got you into graffiti? Who inspired you?
started sketching my name and one day my mom parked in white street car park and i just found the place amazing! if you compare it to now it looked like shit but i don’t know i just loved the colours man!
and RTM influenced me alot and still do!
4. How would you describe your style?
If you know tell me cause to be honest i don’t think i got one yet, im still working hard to perfect what i got so far!
5. Do you rather bombing or piecing? Why?
Piecing no doubt, im not the bombing man of the crews at all!
people that know me will tell ya!
6. What do you think of the Irish scene right now?
I’ve painted a good bit around the place but i honestly think the CORK scene is the best simply because the writters help eachother out and no beef wich is key in our scene, compared to dublin where your piece is gone over within 24 hours by some grunk!
7. What are your three favorite pieces?
one of my favorite isn’t on the net.
the other 2 would be,
this one i painted with Randy and Betsie on paddy’s day, let’s just say by the end of it no one was sober!

12. A little birdie (Randy) told me that you did a few lines of coke before painting, how did that go? :L
well that little birdie is gonna get shot and served with a side plate of spuds.
P.S: I recomend not to try it lads!! especially if your painting on the come down!
13. Having been all over the place like China and Canada, do you have any crazy stories of your travels?
Canada , Vancouver, Summer 2010,
i was in the hostel looking for a contact on flickr and when i sent a mail to Rask (local not irish rask) got an imediate reply and told me to meet him at the local graff shop wich conveniently was 2 doors from the hostel, met him later anyways when to the spot (leeside) and painted with , Habit, Rask, Mover, Milf and Sense good laugh, so basicly was your ordinary day just painting until…. Mover asked me to go paint Freights, at that point on i figured what the hell might aswell i mean after watching the SDK going at it on youtube i said why not, ended up painting over 30 freight cars (with everything tags, trowups ect…..) and getting away with it i was completly amazed at how easy it was to paint a train there but after travelling a good bit around the world id say europe is best for paint without a doubt!!
I’d prefer to risk getting caught painting trains than just walking in and out of a yard with no worries, it’s not as fun!
14. Any plans for the future?
plenty more painting thats for sure!
15. Finally any last words or shouts?
Shouts to all the cork heads and the dublin heads i clubed with when i was over! you know who ye are boys!
Keep painting and get ready for world war III
