Tell us who you are, how you came about your name, what crews you rep and how long you have been writing?
Hello, I’m Remio. I made up my name in 1998, it came about through a series of contortions on different words I was writing. I had been writing band names like “NIRVANA” or “ZAPPA” or “ZAP40″ for Frank Zappa, and his birth year..and also “TRADEMARK”, “SERE”, “IMER”, and so forth… “REMIO” came about as a variation on “IMER”. I had just flipped it backwards for the sake of doodling something different, I added that “O” because of a local writer i looked up too (“FATSO”, He’s still active, and was crushing the town I lived in at the time..) He would flare out his “O” and I liked that so I added an “O”. The letters themselves were appealing to me as well. They were good to draw. Common letters, with many applications across vocabulary.
