How come that you`re into street art?
>> I started to do street art because I was bored by conventional art and thought of creating new, more open alternatives in my life.

Describe your own style in a few words.
>> Wild mosaics.

What is your perception of the street art- scene in the city where you`re living?
>> Very good, there is much quality and many talents.

Are there artists who had (or still have) influence on your art?
>> In the past, when I started, I was influenced by my friends.

What meaning does urban art have for you?
>> Expressing as much as possible on the streets, considering that everybody can see it, no matter if rich or poor. It is there for all social classes.

  1. Such a great interview, and truly a unique mosaic bombing style that Simer has goin' on. I am a huge graffiti fan and a hip hop scholar from Canada, and would love to meet up with like minded people when I am in Nicaragua over the next month (starting Jan. 21st/2013.) My email is, hit me up if anyone wants to chat. Simer, I love your work.
