Estria Battle NY Artist Profile: REDS

Estria Battle NY Artist Profile: REDS

Whether it be Amish country in Pennsylvania, high-rises in New York, or tropical beaches in Hawaii, REDS ONE has traveled the nation evolving and perfecting her art. Contrary to the name, REDS color of choice is actually a watery shade of blue. Here’s what she had to say about the Estria Battle this year:

How did you become involved with graffiti?
I’ve always been into graffiti since I was a little one. But it took one friend to give me that push and make me get up on walls. He noticed how quick I’d draw letters on paper and suggested I pick up a can and take it to the wall!

How would you describe your own personal style and how did you develop it?
Hmm I’d say there is a feminine touch to it (I dont do it on purpose!). I’m very colorful! I love colors! My letter structure is very simple, not really filled with extensions. When I first started, I tried doing wildstyles and WOW was that a complete fail! So I decided to go ahead and turn it down a bit and really focus on the letters.

How is your work translated into community work?
It provides an outlook into miami lifestyle, art for the city while beautifying it, and can also encourage kids to join the movement of street art/graffiti.

What are your thoughts on the Estria Invitational Graffiti Battle? Who do you see as your greatest competition?

I think it’s an awesome event!  It’s a great way to get artists together and have a good time! I feel that everyone on the line up is my greatest competition! lol. But I’d say I gotta watch out for Doves, Totem and Meres.

If you could create your own Montana can, what color would it be and what would you call it?
You ready for this?….. NOPE its not a shade of Red. It would be some shade of blue-aquaish-tealish and I’d name it “MissREDS bloo.”
