i took this picture, not took it in the “i was standing there with a camera and pressed a button” sense but more in the “i saw this in a thread on a message board and dragged it onto my desktop” sort of way.

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 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.
