Aitch draws wonderfully and moves often. Because we are such fans, we’ll be showing two of her works in the background for the next couple of weeks. Art, what she’s been up to in Porto and much more, coming up next…

Mihai N: Hello! You’ve just had a solo exhibition in Portugal. How did you get there and what’s the vibe?

Aitch: Hey! I moved to Portugal 6 months ago because I fell in love with Lisbon about 3 years ago when I first saw it, and the exhibition happened because a year ago I had another solo show in a small city here and things just fell into place.

M: The quantity, complexity and quality of your pieces is overwhelming. How do you manage to dedicate so much time to art and make a living out of it?

A: Thank you very much, I’m glad you still like my work.

Well, this is basically what my days are made of: drawing, sleeping, eating, traveling… I’d feel like the lowest loafer in the world if I didn’t even get down to drawing.

M: Since I started following your progress I noticed a few patterns alongside new and varied themes. What inspires you and what have you enjoyed drawing lately?

A: In the past half a year since I changed countries I went through a darker phase, feeling low, it’s been a super-whiny winter and it shows a bit in my drawings, there are a lot of coffins and sad wolfish faces.  Now that it’s nice outside I got my appetite for flowers and tame wildlife back, combined with the jumble in my head.

feeder insider w/ AitchM: What are you working on now and what are your plans for the foreseeable future?

A: I’m working on a series of canvases for a 12-month ongoing project being held by a gallery in Bucharest, and I should get a bit more organized in August and start work on a new series for the duo show with Saddo, in Ottawa.

M: Considering that every artist leaves anonymity behind with only an ideal and since you’ve come so far, may I ask what the recipe for success is?

A: It’s not that far actually but I do believe the most important thing is to find your own peculiar trait and go with it.

M: To wrap things up, tell me a little about the illustration you picked for our website’s background.

A: 🙂 I think there’s actually two of them and they’re part of the „whiny winter” series.

  2. […] Recently the Japanese 🇯🇵 street artist Aito Kitazaki and his partner in life, Saki Kitazaki, were visiting Bucharest. Currently, Aito Kitazaki is travelling the world painting manga-inspired characters combined with calligraphy and personal perspectives while Saki Kitazaki is filming all the nice murals and funny stuff along their adventure. We were happy to be the tour guides, so we arrange an alternative route through the city to show them the local vibes. We only had one day to check out places where he can make a new mural, so no time to waste. We had to move quickly. We were happy to randomly meet ERPS, one of the first graffiti writers in Romania, at Corner Shop. We‘ve passed by Pant Village and Street Delivery, where they could see a few of the local graffiti writers’ works. At the end of the day, they decided to paint a mural at Lente, adding a new layer of spirit and meaning, while continuing the series of murals alongside Sorina Vazelina & Primitiv Print, Livia Fălcaru & Reg, Irlo, Pisica Pătrată, Praf de cretă, Saddo & Pren, Ada Mușat, Cutărică, Kitră, Aitch.
