Graffiti Photographers United Celebrates Writers Painting Trains
These days when the general public think of graffiti, they’re normally referring to the variety found on walls. Spotting painted trains is a much rarer occurrence in certain cities, due mostly to securer locations coupled with modern technology and CCTV analytics’s. In European cities such as Berlin, Amsterdam or Paris, graffiti writers are painting whole trains as it it were the nineties eighties. Except these crews do much of their work during daylight hours. They roll up firm handed and paint entire trains with passengers still on-board.
Paul Stenzel’s Graffiti Photographers: United is a collection of action shots taken by artist and crews across the world. Photo editor Paul was keen to promote artist progress shots rather than the end result. The focus is firmly on graffiti writers as they commit highly illegal acts on trains seldom seen in London.
