One of my favorite components of urban grit is the graffiti adorning train cars everywhere. I find them fascinating! I always wonder about their makers, what does the art mean, what do the letters stand for, where was it created, how far has it traveled… etc. I consider them works of art in their own rights – they showcase obvious, yet anonymous talent. Society considers the originators criminals and outcasts, and maybe they are – who knows? But they are also superbly talented. Sure, painting someone else’s property is an illicit pursuit, but still… I don’t mean those lame tags that are Sharpied onto street signs and sprayed on garage doors. These are of a different caliber, for sure. I would love to have one of them come over and do a trick on the back wall of my garage. I think that would be awesome, but how and where to find these elusive souls – who knows? For now, I will just enjoy their work in all its anonymity.
