Today we’d like to introduce you to Twnkii Garcia. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Krewline was developed by my brother and I around 2018. We are twins. We prototyped an aerosol adapter called 210 Cap, the graffiti community refers to as a stencil cap or adapter. The 210 Cap allows for Graff artists to spray very thin lines on their spray art. Ideally used for smaller walls and canvas pieces. We currently sell the caps online and wholesale to Graff shops in London, Berlin, USA cities, France, Mexico, and Netherlands.
In the Graff world, there are a lot of monikers people go by or given to them unwillingly. My brother and I go by Twnkii and Twnky. We did not like that name growing up but it stuck, so we got used to it. We don’t like to use our real names for professional and Graff reasons.
We grew up in Ft Worth Texas, we are half Hispanic (Mexican). We grew up in the ’80s in a barrio where Lowrider culture was the thing. That had an influence on us as artists from calligraphy, painting on lowrider bikes, spray painting, tagging, hip hop, and graphic design. Currently, we do have day jobs as graphic artists, motion graphics, and videography. We also do murals on occasion.
Mottos: Stay up Stay safe. Graffiti is an old man. No face no Case. Fail fast fail often.
About Product: 210 Cap by krewline
This is an Aerosol adapter for graffiti artists. These are 3D printed in Resin and Nylon caps. This is a spray paint attachment that is a two-in-one tool that can spray thin lines & drip mop to go, without all the mess. This tool was designed with the mural, graffiti, and canvas artist in mind who is looking for that elusive fine aerosol detail in their wall and canvas pieces. You can now focus longer and harder on the artwork without the worry of dripping and splattering. The 210 cap sprays a constant 2mm to 6mm line aerosol in the color of your choice. Fits Ironlak, Montana, Belton, Flame, Loop, Kolour, and similar types of aerosol cans and Rusto and Krylon.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
There are always struggles along the way, that is what makes any achievement worthwhile. When we developed the 210 Cap prototype, it took longer than expected. We had to learn 3D programs, Product design, and product manufacturing along the way. The idea seemed simple but once you tried to apply it to an aerosol can the problems were apparent and grew. After 2 years of many iterations, and real case usage and feedback we started to manufacture in bulk numbers, usually 100 sets. Another part that was hard to gauge was marketing and setting retail and wholesale pricing. We still have bumps in the road but we are confident we have a viable product and most important that the Graffiti artists like using it.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
We specialize and are known for our Krewline products. We are proud of some of our murals we sprayed over the last 3 years, The best way to show you is our Instagram page. We post all our art here: https://www.instagram.com/krewline/ and www.krewline.com
