Troy Lovegates AKA Other “Back Talk” Conversation



To introduce readers to some of the Street Artists in the upcoming show “Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories”, BSA asked a number of the artists to take part in “Back Talk” with one of our most trusted and underground and sweet sources for modern art, Juxtapoz.

Today we hear from Troy Lovegates AKA Other.

The moment you realized you were an ‘artist’: “I immediately went out and bought a beret and a bottle of cheap wine and got drunk, smashed my whole apartment and went to my girlfriends place but she was sleeping with another man.  So I went down to the docks and cried…then made a real good painting about it.”
