Normally when I see footage of graffiti on the exterior of Subway trains, the video is from the golden age of NYC graffiti, before the city started cracking down on vandals and putting trains out of service at the sight of any sort of illegal paint.
Nowadays, a ride on the New York City Subway system is pretty much void of any sort of painted graffiti. Sure, there’s a lot of scratchiti and stickers, but for the most part, spray paint is gone from the silver backs of the Subway trains.
In the videos above from a series called “Not Guilty Volume 3″, several speakers give some insight and advice into the graffiti art movement. But the real gem here is the amount of actual footage taken of trains that are running with graffiti. It seems like this happens a lot more often than I think it does, and I would personally love to see more trains like this on the track. I dunno, I can dream, right?
