Two New Interviews with TooFly and RWK

NO surprise to find that Street Artists have multiple talents aside from art, and Royce Bannon has been developing some of his other interests over the past year at the SOURCE magazine.

In the new issue of The Source Royce has an interview with well-known and respected TooFly,

who paints from the the graffiti and muralist tradition in New York, is a founding member of the Younity Collective, and is continually involved in a number of entrepreneurial ventures:

“Royce: YOU’RE A JILL OF ALL TRADES, FROM TOYS TO CLOTHES. ARE THERE ANY OTHER MARKETS YOU WOULD LIKE TO VENTURE INTO

TooFly: In the last few years I have been intrigued by large video projections. Especially these days with all the new forms of laser technology that allow you to display graphics and live video on the sides of buildings and structures. I’ve been scoping out a few companies who use the urban environment to do this kind of stuff, and it’s definitely something I want to tap into. I think I have a production type of heart from curating and organizing large painting productions, as well as community events.” Read the full interview HERE at The Source

Additionally, Royce has been writing on their blog, including this new interview with Chris and Veng from Robots Will Kill

In the brief interview we learn from Chris what the origins of the name “Robots Will Kill” were,

“The name comes from the idea of people becoming stuck in place in life, whether its work or something else, becoming robotic and it killing off the creative and productive part of their life.”

Luckily for us, neither Royce nor TooFly nor RWK look like they’re becoming robotic.
