"The serpent is symbolic of the fertility of nature and man's connection to the earth. It is also associated with early understanding of the sky, galaxy and the infinite. It's appropriate for graffiti because like a serpent sheds its skin, I'm leaving behind a form of myself and continuing on.
Growing up in California and living on a fault line, I'm also fascinated by earth quakes which has been showing up in my recent works. In Norse Mythology, the trickster god Loki orchestrated the death of a god named Baldr. As punishment Loki was bound by the intestines of one of his sons and a serpent was placed above him. When venom drips on him he writhes in pain creating earth quakes. " - Gats
