SCHAKALWAL in a wijld interview …

Schakalwal likes it generally very colorful! So also his designs are cheeky and colorful. Inspired by graffittis & street art, cartoons & manga, pop culture and humor, Schakalwal provides us with fresh and clean graphic design.

wijld:
Where does the inspiration for your work come from?
Schakalwal:
Actually from everywhere. If you live life with your eyes wide open, you can find inspiration in the smallest things. But besides I also have my rituals. Behance Network, Instagram Feed and so on. The world wide web knows it all! But I also have some great books and magazines that I browse from time to time.

 

wijld:
Lego or Playmobil?
Schakalwal:
Lego all the way! Playmobil figures are only able to bend but not walk.
Lego is the stuff for the creative heads.

 

wijld:
What do you need to be extremely productive at work?
Schakalwal:
At nighttime I’m the most productive. Nothing distracts me, no one calls, there is only bullsh*t on TV, no appointments, no stress. Then, turning on the right music, a pack of cigarettes, snacks.

 

wijld:
Do you think art should make some kind of statement or mean something?
Schakalwal:
Art doesn’t have to necessarily mean something. I think a message is always cool, but simple eye candy can also make you happy.

 

wijld:
What kind of style of what artist do you really like?
Schakalwal:
I’ve always been a huge fan of 123Klan and Flying Förtress. So I’ve given my first likes within the graffitti scene. Then, I’m so into cartoon, manga and anime art. Of course with the years there are more and more sources of inspiration. Especially typography and calligraphy play a major role.
Wicked artists in random order: McBess, Nychos, Jared Nickerson, Pendleton Ward, Akira Toriyama, 123Klan, Flying Förtress, Hydro74, Yeaaaah Studio, Spacecandy, Martin Schmetzer, Cuypi, Filter017, Juicefoozle and so on...
