Episode Info:

It's rare that an artist, however talented, get's to travel with their work for exhibiting or performing and even rarer for an artist to do it twice, the refreshing nature that Justin shares stories of travelling as both a professional drummer and a street artist made this one of the longest and most enthralling interviews I've done yet.

Justin started drumming as a teenager and after returning home from fine tuning his drumming skills through a Masters in Performance in New York, he turned to graffiti as a way to relax and get more in touch with other sides of his creative life. Justin sprays under the alias "Nomad" and has a special relationship with walls and you'll hear about his unique way of finishing his pieces.


Please enjoy this episode, with the talented Justin "Nomad" Badenhorst.

What we chat about in this episode:

  • Treating art as a fulltime job
  • Unspoken rules of graffiti and how to know where to paint.
  • How Social media changed the perception of graffiti.
  • One trick for live performance and the importance of over exaggerating your movements.
  • Separating your identities to build different empires- how using an alias can be more professional online.
  • Who art belongs to- not just the owner of a piece but every person that is moved by it.
  • Analogy of being a straw, keeping your creativity free from ego when you share with others.
