Never Say Nevr March 29 2018, 0 Comments
We're pretty stoked to present the next artist that we’ve had the opportunity to connect with.
We’ve been following the work of Nevs for the last few years since @basiclee inducted the homie into NBK.
Let’s get into the interview...
Ok Nevs, where you from in the Philippines?Nevs:
Right now, I’m currently living both in Santa Rosa City, and Marikina City, Philippines
I got it from a magazine article of a writer that used to write Never, so since he's writing a new tag so I thought I use it. Then took the 2nd E out cause I'm lazy to do 5 letters, so Nevr. Then facebook won't approve of that name so they recommend Nevs. But the name is also for all my frustrations in life all the "Never" things in my life. So yeah that's it.

Yo Nevs, from our understanding you get down a lot and are super busy. From following your work these last couple of years it seems like you rep a bunch of different crews. Can you name them all?
Damn that’s crazy! What do they all mean brooo?
Yeah - Guerrilla Aerosol Kru, East Coast Dead Kids, Nose Bleed Krew, Three Flare Krew, Pilipinas Street Plan & Laguna Graff Squad.

Dope. So is there any message message your trying to convey with the work you do within each of the different crews?
I'd say for the LGS, it's all Laguna based writers.
PSP, is like a collective, that each member has been focusing on their own. But the main focus still is being the street art. Promoting the sub-culture/culture for the mass.

Rad. But what about the work you do on the street? Like graffiti for instance?
Well I feel that doing graffiti is political itself.
As for the crews I rep, there are no political agenda/causes, but maybe some. Just awareness of what's happening I guess.TMM:
Word up Nevs, we can dig it. So what projects are you working on currently?
Current work now at Ronac Lifestyle Center in Magallanes for the Manila Takeover exhibit alongside many talented artists.
Dope brotha, much love for taking the time to connect with us. Also appreciate the time given our 15+ hour time difference. Much love and regards to the fam back home!
