Lately I Have Become Obsessed With Graffiti.

It can have a sense of humour and make a statement at the same time.

It can be simple....

It can take a boring place and make it special.

It can be a medium that bring artists together in the same place.

It can turn the everyday into a party.

Trains have a long history of being intertwined with Graffiti artists. Artists will tag and re-tag the same trains. Are they just defiling the trains, or are they adding to the trains story and beauty, chronicling where the trains have been and the people they have interacted with. What do you think?

This reminds me of a modern day Virgin de Guadalupe.

How does someone do this? I wish I could take a class in how to handle a sraypaint can.
