**LE COVER INTERVIEW**
Who are people behind Le Cover, and where do you
guys come from ?
The elements are: ER PROFESSOR, ZORA LO DRUNK,
SICURO NELLA PROPRIA ABITAZIONE. Our names have been created for
the only purpose of LE
COVèR crew. We are from the middle of Italy, from a little
city in the east coast.
Where do the name "Le Cover" come
The story of le covèr started after a PUBLIC
ENEMY's concert. In ZORA's car we talked about making a huge illegal
graffiti to cover many classic pieces!!! The name comes
from "COVER" because
we reproduce real objects in big size. Name is transformed to LE COVèR
for a "french style" eh eh eh
Who/what inspired you to start it up ?
We started it up because the last 3 years we
only made legal pieces in hall of fames, and streets looked grey
pathetic, so took
our old balaclava helmets and ours old big brushes and le
essential social terrorism project started.............
How do you guys work, as individuals or as collective ?
We are 3 in 1, 6 harms and 1 mind.
Any design education ?
We dont know, we are italian!!! no we are self-taught
did you choose to make graffiti without paint in big your artist
name or the crew one ?
Because ours is a social message and because
we are different to others people
.....but wait for LE COVèR VIII
kind of message do you hope to deliver ? (with Panda tanker or
Chicken Farm mixer by example)
In the world there too much wickedness and not
much respect for ours Earth.
Are you militants ? like being in an altermondialist association
or making some demonstrations like against G8 ?
No we aren't militants, we are simple guys with
big ideas in the ass!!!
kind of graffiti artists (modern or old school) inspired you ?
All and nothing, my uzi weighs a ton (Public Enemy)
do you paint a serial number with your graffiti piece ?
We think its a great idea, because after
every piece people want to see the next one..
What are relationships between graffiti artists and police/politics
in Italy ?
Berlusconi seems not to be the kind of president being agree with
that ? yes or no ?
oh yeah! Berlusconi is a shit-fascist-rich-plastic
face-dwarf-defensor of rich-capitalist-buana-mother fucker-mafious
will paint his yacht in the future.
Do you feel like you’re different
from other people because you go out the night and paint when other
people are asleep or are
dancing and drinking ?
what do you think? yes we are different but is
the destiny, many times they are ours inspirations.
What can we expect from Le Cover in the future ?
At the moment Le Cover is a fucking machine that
can't be stopped!!! We have big ideas and you will soon see them,
if we arent in
Any shout outs or fuck yous?
Pizza, spaghetti e mandolino for all!
