Daniel Gavotti ( Venezuela)

First latino on the blog I am really happy to welcome Daniel, and I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to any spanish native speaker, but the goal here is to reach the bigger number of rock art lovers around the world and give the artists the chance of being discovered, this is the reason why this interview is in english.

Hello, of course as every Crewk interview, first question: what are we listening to when we come to visit you?

Do you think you are part of a "Graphic Scene", if so who else ?

I would be the "scene" to survive away from the commercial interest of the moment

A bit of self-promotion, take advantage of it, it's free, where can we see your work , on the web or in real life?
