Art in the Streets - Freight Trains

There is so much to see at the Art in the Streets exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. One of the displays that caught my eye was a series of model sized freight trains painted by many of the heavy hitter freight train graffiti writers from around the country. See the 12 trains that were displayed.

Does Graffiti Attract More Graffiti?

Graffiti Causes More Graffiti
These two pictures are an attempt to answer the age old question, does graffiti attract more graffiti? If a store owner or a city allows a tag to stay up, will more tags show up? It seems that the answer is, yes. Graffiti attracts more graffiti.

The above picture was taken
a few months ago of JOB crew and Versuz 269 LTS KOG. Over the past few weeks more and more writers were painting on the same building. The building is in the process of being torn down. I took the second picture a bit late, it's hard to tell all the new tags that showed up because the demolition has already started.

Thank you for your support - Japan Relief

Thanks everyone for your support. We sent off the payment this morning to the No Future Krew in Japan.

We also bought a bunch of sleeping bags with our own funds and sent them with a different group of people. Northern Japan is very cold and the sleeping bags well help them stay warm.
