1xRUN Thru Interview
War and Pieces by Sever

1xRUN: What materials were used to create this piece ?
Sever:  Illustrated hand-drawn pencil sketch transformed into the 12-color screen print you see here.

1xRun: When was the piece drawn and created?    
Sever:  February of 2013. It was done over three nights around Valentine’s Day.


1xRun: What is unique about this piece?     
Sever:  In addition to keeping it real, it’s a think piece.

1xRun: Why should people buy this print?    
Sever:  If it’ll help sell more prints to the people skimming this then I can give a long drawn out answer that’s likely to repel even more potential customers.

1xRun: Describe this print in one gut reaction word.     
Sever:  Subtle.


1xRun: When did you first start making art? What was your first piece?    
Sever:  When I saw this image (left).  My first piece was really when I conceived this (R) that I knew I was onto something. I had mastered Wildstyle®.


1xRun: What artists inspired you early on? What artists inspire you now?  
Sever:    The author of this (L) really set me on my path. (For the latter) Whoever did these (R) is firme.


1xRun: Do you listen to music while you work? If so what?
Sever:   Unironically I’m intrigued by late 90′s nu rap metal mall-core stuff.  But I do like classical music too.


1xRun: If you could collaborate with any living artist who would it be and why? Any deceased artists? 
Sever:  I’d say Bushwick Bill, Lugz designers, Pen and Pixel, MQUE and Big Dog’s art directors. [For the latter] GG Allin, Howard Zinn, Rudy Ray Moore, Frazetta, Manute Bol, Bashkie, SEO, Joseph Kyselak, George Carlin, Russel Jones, Tookie Williams, Will.I.Am etc…


1xRun: What was the last piece of art that you bought? Do you still have it?    
Sever:  Car lashes and flesh tone truck nuts qualify right?

1xRun: Anything you want to add?
Sever:  RIP NEKST.
