    To hear the full interview, visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-019-with-1up-crew it’s 3:00pm on a tuesday afternoon at a crowded train station in Berlin. A young lady tucks her newspaper under her arm as her train pulls into the station to take her home. From the corner of her eye she sees something move in the bushes just past the end of the train platform. She gasps. It’s a dude with a ski mask over his face carrying a bag and jumping up onto the platform. He’s followed by 9 others all dressed in similar gear. As the train comes to a complete stop, all 10 drop their bags, pull out two massive spray paint cans (one for each hand), and proceed to get busy. The group moves without words but with an ironic speed, precision, and order not entirely unlike that of the german transit authority. In moments the entire train car is covered with paint. A cloud of dust hangs in the air as the commuters stand stunned and frozen, not getting on or off of the train. In a flash, the group gathers up their shit and bolts back down the platform, into the bushes, and are gone forever. As the dust cloud settles the young lady turns back to look at the train. Where she just moments ago saw the doors and windows of a train car, she now sees her own reflection looking back at her from within three massive chrome letters… 1 U P Join JB and Tom this week for a very special eppisode of VantagePoint with the mysterious and fascinating 1UP crew

        To hear the full interview, simply visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-015-twoone To step into the studio of TWOONE is to step into the reality that some artists are simply able to shine in multiple mediums and make it look easy. Painting, sculpture, murals, etchings… there’s very little that this guy doesn’t do and do well. Born in Japan, and aged like a fine wine in Australia, TWOONE is now making a heavy presence in his new home of Berlin Germany. Upon arrival (literally in the first week he arrived) he actually painted a 1000+ square meter mural organized by the crew at Urban Nation. These days TWOONE is working hard in his new studio gearing up for two solo shows at both StolenSpace gallery in London and Backwoods gallery in Melbourne. As busy as he is at the moment, it didn’t stop him from inviting JB and Tom over for a chat about everything that’s going on in his life these days, how he’s taking to his new home and his third major international relocation, and what we can expect from him in the future.

          To hear the full interview visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-001-vidam As co-founder of the Berlin based art and design company Peachbeach, VIDAM and his partner LOOK have been making big noise in Germany for years. In 2011 things got even more interesting when the pair joined up with Nychos, HrVB, and the Low Brows among others to form the mighty Weird Crew and demanded that the rest of the world take notice. Aside from being a painter, illustrator, designer, and muralist… Vidam somehow finds the time to produce music as well. His steady release of tracks is impressive and big things are sure to come from Vidam in 2014. Join James and Tom as we learn more about Vidam from the man himself and get an exclusive sneak peak at some of his unreleased tracks on the first episode of Vantage Point.

                To hear the full interview, simply visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-016-base23 Any close observer of the work of German artists BASE23 can easily see the connection between the boxy geometric characters that he paints and the 70′s era Japanese toys and robots that he’s been obsessively collecting for decades. His effortless understanding of shape, form, color, and perspective speak to his background in graphic design. The clean straight lines and nearly perfect execution of his wall paintings tells you that this guy has been painting for a LONG time (since the late 80′s in fact), and has mastered his craft… In fact, it would be safe to say that he’s been cultivating his artistic voice for his entire life and may have inadvertently created the perfect storm to develop a style all of his own. Although he splits his time between Germany’s two ‘Capitols of Cool’, Berlin and Hambug, BASE23 made time in his busy schedule to sit down with VantagePoint on a hot summer night, drink a couple of beers, and talk about it all.

                  To hear the full interview visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-008-dave-the-chimp Our goal here at VantagePoint, above everything else, is to create a window with each episode into the mind of our guest artist and give our listeners a greater understanding of what makes them tick… to somehow bridge the gap between the visual work we see from an artist, and the mind that created that work… Well this week ladies and gentlemen, we strapped in tight, closed our eyes, and jump with both feet into the wild mind of Dave the Chimp. Originally from an undisclosed village in Britain, skateboarding was the Chimps first love and the vehicle that would eventually lead him to becoming an active participant in London’s street art scene. His unique brand of “cartoon-ish” imagery and social satire takes many different forms and continues to expand. Dave likes to keep busy and has his fingers in many different pies. He’s constantly creating work in just about every type of art making process one can think of and has collaborated with an impressively long list of artists including his fellow Visual Rockstars counterpart Flying Fortress. To even scratch the surface of everything this guy is involved in we would have needed way more than a one hour show, but here it is anyway, a chaotic and hyperactive ride through the world of Dave the Chimp.

                    To hear the full interview visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-014-word-to-mother At well over 6 feet tall and built like a MACK truck, when he enters the room, he’s hard to miss. Covered in tattoos and sporting a thick Hastings accent, it’s easy to jump to the assumption that this guy is more likely a cage fighter than an artist. Within seconds of talking with him however, you realize that Word To Mother is one very chilled out, genuine, down to earth dude with a great outlook on life and his place in the art world. With a stronghold in the urban contemporary art scene going back almost a decade (to well before there even was an “urban contemporary” art scene) and ongoing relationships with some of the scenes leading galleries such as Stolenspace (LDN), Thinkspace (LA), and White Walls (SF), Word To Mother seems to be doing everything right. When asked what his secret is, the answer he gives is so honest and “bullshit free” that it’s almost surprising to hear it… “right place, right time… and just try to be nice to people.” Join JB and Tom this week as we hear straight from the man himself about how deep friendships, selling sneakers, smoking weed, and listening to a lot of Nas’s 1994 classic album ‘Illmatic‘ could just be the perfect recipe for fame and glory in the street-art game.

                      To hear the full interview visit http://vantagepointradio.com/?portfolio_cpt=episode-012-lake Early in his “working class” upbringing in one of East Berlin’s more challenging neighborhoods, LAKE hit the streets and started what would become a lifelong painting career that has already spanned over three decades and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Adding rock climbing and studio artwork to his list of hobbies only increased his desire to travel the world and create. Any visitor to Germany’s capitol city has surely seen a LAKE piece and those who live here can’t help but see them just about every day. This week JB and Tom sit down with Berlin’s most prolific muralists, LAKE for a very enlightening conversation. Among other fascinating topics such as how his hobby of rock climbing gives him a distinct advantage over other mural painters, Lake gives us his first hand account of what the East vs. West Berlin graffiti scene was like during and after the fall of the Wall.
