if anyone ever questioned the relevance and merit of graffiti as an art form and why we who love and follow it think no other modern art movement has made the dramatic impact and splash that graffiti has, well here’s some fucking proof!

they did this illegally on a freight train. it will travel around a continent visiting freight train yards under the radar, not in an art gallery or on someone’s living room wall..it exists without needing to be appreciated, for this art there is purpose in just being there.

and that’s why every major advertising company is using photos of graffiti, or using someone’s piece as a backdrop. do those artists get royalties? did they receive a commission for their work being used?

no, because again…graffiti’s purpose is to exist and be appreciated by a select few. it is not for everyone, but it could be if you opened your eyes.

wow. look at this guy, huh? he’s so grumpy. why are you so grumpy, dude? pretty sure your whole life involves travel across a continent via freight train, it could be worse.

these 2 guys changed the way i looked at graffiti and the concept of getting a name up forever.

found this whole section of a live/work loft building in bk postered up by mostly cost, but of course there is some revs in there too.

maybe one of them lived in this building? perhaps gabe can shed some light on the subject since he was the one who took me here.
