I’m NORM, a graffiti artist based in Germany. I started with graffiti in 2001, over the years I got more and more interested in painting realistic stuff. I don’t prefer any particular style or motives – in my point of view, it is important not to limit but rather challenge yourself. Since 2011 I’m working as a freelance artist and started my own brand ABARTIG. I really enjoy travelling the world, sharing my art with people, and live from what I love the most! Sometimes it’s very hard – thanks to social media graffiti and art, in general, is easy to consume and available at all times. Nowadays you can’t compete only with the local artists but rather with artists from around the world. Depending on my daily mood this competition gives me a headache: you take a look on your phone, just see a new banger of another artist and think “fuck, take my money” and you ask yourself “what am I doing here?”. But this exact point is what motivates and inspires me to get better.
