Graffiti on train

Art in Common Places – Graffiti

On a recent bike ride, I passed a train car with the most amazing artwork spray painted on the car. I love finding art in common places – graffiti was the artwork I found on this ride. Some of the train cars had tagging that had been cleaned and you could only see a shadow of the “artwork.” I do hope they don’t clean this eye artwork.

Some of the artwork that can be found on train cars is exquisite. Other times, the graffiti is just bad art. There is good article about this subject, Graffiti: Art of the tag, that you might want to check out.

I wonder who the person was that created this image and does the person do any other type of artwork or is this the main avenue for self-expression?
