Q: Tell me about your artistic background.

A: I started my IG art account around September. It was a style that seemed complicated at first, but as time passed, I became better at it. Before that I liked drawing weird stuff…

“Biggie x Tupac”

Q: Where do you find inspiration?

A: My biggest inspiration is Deladeso, he is the one who created this art style (Grime) and I fully admire his creativity and originality. I also like other creators trying out new stuff.

(The grime art in Getter’s Video “Head Splitter” was created by Deladeso.)

And also from my grandpa. He used to say:

                       “Go forward and upward”

and that’s why I keep doing these grimes.

Q: What would your dream project look like?

A: Honestly, I have no idea.
