BRINGING ART TO THE TRAINS
This book is an introduction to the phenomenon of painting on trains.
Often shrugged off as vandalism or barely noticed as more than a blur
when a train zooms by in the morning rush hour, Graffiti on trains has
remained a closed to intrusion from the outside world. All the works presented
in the book are no longer existent, eradicated from the trains and the
remaining photos have spent years hidden away for the fear of criminal
prosecution. The authors of the book have brought these photos back to
the light and created a collection of the best and most inspiring work
that has been running on the tracks between Madrid and Helsinki, Bucarest
and London. The next time a painted train pulls into the station, the
reader of ACTION PAINTING might take a different look at it.
