#HIT&RUN #AHOLSNIFFSGLUE #DOYOURJOB




On 8/9/12, I went to the opening of Ahol Sniffs Glue's solo art show at Gregg Shienbaum Fine Art. Smooth beats from Metro Zu, and awesome artwork by Ahol, couldn't get any better then that. The show will be running till the 27th, so I encourage everyone who is here in Miami to go check it out, if you haven't already. I dropped some questions to Ahol, just so you all can get the scoop on who Ahol is. Also I only posted a few photos, because everyone should DO THEIR JOB and go check this dudes artwork out, you won't be disappointed.

Q&A with Ahol Sniffs Glue

MSA: So every artist has their beginning, where did it start for you?
AHOL: I use to draw characters and make my civilization of creatures and based them on people around.  I was inspired by my friend Gonz and his ex Totals.  I then started to get more and more serious about creating.  That's pretty much it.

MSA: How long have you been writing/painting?
AHOL: 10+ years, don't remember exactly.

MSA: So it was all over the local news, and we all saw it on Facebook. But tell my followers what happened that night of the Hit & Run accident.
AHOL: I was leaving work on a rainy day on my Honda Ruckus. Some lady wasn't paying attention and she turned into me head on.  I ended up under her car, she backed up, pulled up next to me, I asked for help and she said sorry and drove away before I could get her plate. Sux

MSA: What was your main influence that propelled you into the art world?
AHOL: I was inspired by my brother and by Gonz and Totals, creativity is the ultimate.  Im glad I pursued it.

MSA: Tell me something about your art style, any significance to those eyes you create?
AHOL: The eyes are the sleepy drugged out eyes from my characters.  They are numb from all the shit we are exposed to. 

MSA: Any funny stories of being out, bombing with your crew?
AHOL: My friends are awesome, ssk is the best. I love my dogs.

MSA: SSK The Stay Shitty Komitee... How did it form? Who reps it?
AHOL: Ssk is gonz's making, there's a lot of people in it, even people that don't paint.  Some people in the crew are gonz, 3i7, disem, audet, elite, stress, kombs, asik, where, Jonas, bruk. I'm sure I'm missing some

MSA: What's your favorite thing about being an artist?
AHOL: I love creating, regardless of what it is.  My life has purpose through creativity
