Here are the results of a Q & A session which took place in early Dec 2009:

When did you start to make art?

Static began making pictures in early 2006, whether it can be classed as art is entirely in the mind of the beholder.

How did you evolve into a professional artist?

We don't consider ourselves professionals in this field, we've got a lot to learn and luckily the freedom to develop what we do and how we do it.

What drove you to make art as a professional vocation?

Having misspent a couple of years in the wilderness following graduation, we decided we'd set up a print studio and see what happened if we could do something productive on a daily basis.

Explain your inspiration?

As Paul Smith says, 'Inspiration can be found in anything and if you don't find it... look again.'

In what way does your inspiration transform into ideas?

It's similar to osmosis - ideas and inspiration get blended together and find their own balance before they are brought to light and reassembled to create something original and new.

Could your ideas be portrayed in any other medium? If so which?

We're continually experimenting with different mediums and processes to communicate our ideas and challenge ourselves to develop from where we've come from with previous projects and pieces.

Which artists would you most like to blatantly rip off?

'It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to.' Jean-Luc Godard

Why is your art made?

Our work is the expression of our ideas and is made to connect and question the ideas of others.

What does being an artists mean to you?

We do what we love doing and get to communicate with a global audience and that's all we could want to achieve.

When does your art become successful?

The first time someone sees it and wants to tell someone else about it.

What is art?

Art is anything you want it to be, or make of it... just as life is. At the end of the day it's what the individual connects with on a personal level and can take pleasure from.

How do you start the process of making work?

Speak, scribble, sketch, scrawl, stick, scan, spray, stencil, screen - but it largely depends on the piece, the process and how we want the final product to be perused.

Who prices your work? And how is the price decided upon?

We price all our work based on the materials, processes and time they take to produce as well as taking into consideration the audience we want it to reach.

Which pieces would you like to be remembered for?

It's not about being remembered, for us it's about our work making an impact right now.
