Atom One is a name that stands for over 30 years of quality graffiti innovation. His roots stemming from the German city of Dortmund, he is now one of the most respected graffiti writers on the globe. With an unstoppable work ethic, his continual commitment to graf - fiti style writing has made him a reference point for multiple generations of graffiti writers. To celebrate the legendary status of the 20th Montana-Cans Artist Series can, it seemed only fitting to feature a legendary writer that is active both behind the scenes and in the scene. With his choice of the Montana BLACK ATOM's MEGABLAST color, ATOM has paid homage to his favorite variation of his favorite color, orange. MC You have had many periods in your work where particular styles came to the fore. Do you have a favorite or any favorite phases in your style that you can reflect on? ATOM One poignant period for me was when the Berlin writers regularly came to visit Dortmund, and I saw that you can make your style a lot more attractive and with a lot more power with very few visual resources. For me when I saw this, I sat down and set myself the goal of taking the typical Dortmund blockbuster style that I was doing to a new level and dealing a little more with letter combinations or to put it more I do not judge when people progress and develop their ideas and expressive forms further, to reflect the art they make and the mediums they use. ← ATOM proving again who is the winner between man and machine, with this colorful wholecar. MONTANA CANS Your graffiti name is known all over the world, your style of graffiti is a reference point for writers of all ages, and you have been heavily active for over 3 generations. Does the fire still burn in you as strongly as when you began? ATOM Yes, of course, the fire is still burning as it did at the beginning. MC Graffiti has splintered into many diverse sub-disciplines. What are your feelings toward writers who have turned to focus on fine art and gallery work, and do you still relate to the older writers who focus purely on graffiti style writing? ATOM Things are different now compared to 30 years ago. Some of us have different needs. Now there are obligations, children, you have to earn money, and the time is no longer there to go completely nuts as it was 30 years ago. Or better yet, at the beginning of your career. Time management is the keyword, and everything depends on that. Time management is not my strength otherwise I would be doing more. accurately, the combination of the letters. I no loger went out to just paint 5–6 pieces every day and that was that, rather, I wanted to do achieve one impressive piece and invest a little more effort to get a better result. This was such a milestone for me between 1994 and 1998. MC You have been an active graffiti writer for the greater part of your life and have seen many changes in graffiti culture. (E.G., the internet and social media, the commercialization of graffiti, the many publications made, etc.) Are there any specific topics within graffiti writing culture now that you feel strongly about? ATOM Yes of course. I belong to the old guard and have certain ideas and values that I have come to appreciate and love over the years. Nevertheless, I do not judge when people progress and develop their ideas and expressive forms further, to reflect the art they make and the mediums they use. I have no problem with that, the one belongs to the other, and is also justified and should be continued in my opinion. The only thing I pass judgment on a little is the time people spend on social media. This is time that is not being used to be creative or to reflect on the art you bring to the outside world.
