Hello my name is DXTR The Weird

How would you describe your style?
Low Res Pop Surrealism

Who or what inspires you?
The constant mind-melting output of my crew THE WEIRD inspires me a lot and pushes me to create. Beside that I get a lot of inspiration from books (audio while working), music, society in general, 80/90s nostalgia, etc.

How long have you been active as an artist?
I started painting graffiti in 1999 at the age of 16. During these early years I got into lots of trouble so I had to stop for a while, which led to more character based work and graphic design. Nowadays I combine all of the above.

Have you arrived stylistically or does the style and your goals keep changing?
Style wise I think my work is recognizable but every now and then I'm trying to experiment and change the look a little bit. I call it the David Bowie syndrome, reinventing myself from time to time. That's what keeps it interesting for me after all these years, the constant journey into the unknown.
