EDITOR'S NOTE: grammar error aside, I did not edited any word (or phrase form) coming from Dominik.

INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

My name is Dominik. I am an artist.

WHAT'S THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEHIND YOUR WRITING?WHAT INSPIRES IT?

I do pictures with text. They are open to interpretation. Inspiration I get from everything.

DON'T YOU THINK THAT USING OTHER LANGUAGES THAN ENGLISH COULD BE A LIMIT TO THE INTERPRETATION/UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR WORK?

Yes I user Differenz Language

SOME PICTURES SHOW YOU HOLDING A PIECE OF PAPER WHILE WRITING. SO I GUESS IT IS ALL PLANNED.

I use sometimes words that I wrote on paper. Mostly I write spontaneous text.

DO YOU FIND ANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PAINTING IN THE STREETS OR IN A GALLERY? ALSO HOW DO YOU THINK PEOPLE REACT WHEN THEY SEE IT?

It's more or less the Same [painting] Outside or in Gallery. Maybe my work surprise in Public Space more than in a normal art space. 

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT USING OTHER TYPE OF MEDIA BESIDE THE SPRAY CAN IN YOUR ART?

I used Windows paint and Photoshop to Print on PVC. And I used a Spraygun to write on PVC.

YOU TEASED A CUSTOM BOOTLEG NIKE SWEATSHIRT ON YOUR INSTAGRAM. WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON FASHION AND STREETWEAR IN GENERAL? IS THERE ANY PARTICULAR BRAND YOU FOLLOW OR WOULD LIKE TO COLLABORATE WITH?

There is not a brand I follow or collaborate with. The DOMINIKE logo is just fun for me and if people like it I am happy. Was just an idea I got spontaneous and I print it on shirts.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AS A ARTIST IN THE NEXT FUTURE? ARE THERE ANY PROJECTS/EXHIBITIONS YOU ARE WORKING ON?

I don't know. I am not under pressure. But yes, I focus on new Works, Shows, tattoos and Shirt stuff.
