This is our ASA Artist Interview Series with Ian Phenna.
1. We are a big fan of your work. What is coming up that we NEED to know?
Thanks! I don’t really have anything planned in the way of shows, except a small solo show in Sydney. It is just new pieces that I have painted since I moved to Australia. 
2. What mediums do you use at the moment to make the artworks and are there any new progress in new mediums or formats?
I pretty much grab anything at hand to make marks. But mostly use spray paint and acrylic… But I’ve gone back to using watercolours recently and oil paint… But still mash it up with whatever is at hand. 
3. How do you look at Amsterdam as a street art city?
Amsterdam will always be with me. It’s a dope city with some good spots to paint. Good friends and good spots. What’s not to like?
4. What is the next step in to the future of street art in your opinion?
I don’t know to be honest. I think it’s a valid point to make that street art and graffiti have turned the art world upside down. Certainly a place in art history. More walls would be good!
5. Your a real city kid. Which city would you like to conquer next?
Cities? There are so many! New York, Berlin, I haven’t really “done” London.. The list goes on!
6. I have seen a big progress in your artwork. What do you think about your own progress of the last years?
Thanks again. I paint to learn. I think I have progressed. I just keep experimenting. This seems to be the way forward for me. Hoping for accidents that open up new techniques etc. Lots of things never work out, a few do though.
