Koma, Krack

Koma, Krack
In a world where tattoo artists, street artists and DJs are being tagged as delinquents, vandalisers, felons and law-breakers, we’re trying to show the good, wonderful things these people are creating, the hard work they put into their work in order to do what they love. And this is… creating art.
So, we introduce… Hustlin’ Vandals.

As a kid, I used to draw a lot. In high school, influenced by my new jam – hip hop music – and the extinct artcrimes.com (now graffiti.org/), I’ve managed to throw about 4 shady graffiti pieces around my block and – as a bonus – on my high school building. Meanwhile, “Photoshop” happened.

 

Ever since the discovery of digital design, I’ve been around the Romanian underground scene as a designer, videographer, photographer, event planner or whatever had to be done, “hip-hop and you don’t stop”, right? Joking aside, as a part of Hades Records, Urban Records, Brightness Advertising (aka the “serious job”), plus the freelance gigs, I had the pleasure to work for such clients as: Emagic / Bestfest Romania, HBO Romania, Global Street Art, Yahoo! Romania, Clandestino FM, iMapp, PepsiCo Romania / B.U.G. Mafia, Subcarpati, raku, Kazi Ploae, Veritasaga, Flou Rege, Dj Undoo, Turntable Science, Dagga, Funktastics/Zeppelin/Serafim, Nimeni Altu, Unda Comuna, GroparulLiric, CIA, Chimie, Ombladon & many more.

Based upon all of the above, the birth of Krack was inevitable. It happened in 2014, and the story keeps unveiling.
