remio

In february Remio visited Detroit, paint some pieces, write some tags and signed some silkscreen for the guys at 1xRun. The reports of his stay is on this video that also featured Begr, Heal, Pear, Meme and Kuma.

1xRun organised to sell some screenprints and art painted on fine art paper that you can get from 200 to 700 dols, HERE. They did also on interview you can read down below.

1xRun: Tell us a little bit about this piece, was there an original created?
Remio: This particular R was originally a drawing I made for a die cut sticker to be printed. It’s in a black book somewhere.

1xRun: What materials were used for this piece?
Remio: A sharpie and a page in my black book was used for the original drawing. The laser cut edition was made on birch, with screen print ink and white latex paint.

1xRun: When was this particular ‘R’ drawn and how long does one typically take to complete?
Remio: This one was drawn back in September of 2013. This one took about 10 minutes to finish.

1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Remio: I draw the R’s all the time. This one was around the time a friend passed away. I made the word bubbles blank so I could fill them in by hand with his name on the stickers the image was originally made for.

1xRun: When did you first start making art? Do you remember your first piece?
Remio: I started making art as a child. I can’t really remember my first piece, maybe some finger painting or something. The first thing I remember being proud of was drawing a serpent like dragon in the ocean, figuring out the rings of water around the dragons body as it was coming out of the water was a big step back then.

1xRun: What artists inspired you early on?
Remio: Comic books. I would read them with my dad. In Norway it was mostly Disney stuff rewritten into Norwegian. Donald Duck, Mickey all that stuff. There was also Mad Magazine and Pyton Magazine. Pyton was like a Norwegian Mad, raunchier though.

1xRun: What artists inspire you now?
Remio: My son, he’s completely uninhibited in the way he draws.

1xRun: Do you listen to music while you work?
Remio: Definitely! All types, sometimes its nice to work in silence though. I like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. I have a live recording of theirs that never gets old. Their banter between songs is real good. I work on the road a lot, so my environment always changes. Usually I try to find a nice chill little zone to get some stuff done in, although more often than not I just have to get to it in the middle of all the chaos.

1xRun: If you could collaborate with any deceased artists who would it be and why?
Remio: Kurt Cobain made some really cool art. He seemed like an honest spirit.

1xRun: If you could collaborate with any living artist who would it be and why?
Remio: Maybe a musician like Neil Young. I’m not sure what we would come up with but I love his music. He wrote some of my favorite songs. He’s into trains too. I know that much.
