Amtrak needs to step up.
“Thalys, the European company providing TGV trains between Paris, Bruxelles and Amsterdam, decides to customize one of the trains, inviting SozyOne (Bruxelles), Jonone (Paris), Zedz (Amsterdam) y Seak (Cologne). It’s one of the really few times that graffiti artists are allowed (and paid) to burn metal, it happened yesterday at Gare du Nord, Paris.”

Shepard Fairey was quoted through an email saying…
“When graff seeped into the raw brick it was very difficult to clean, the building is historic and I love and want to protect the brick. The city was never any help with removal. Graffiti is par for the course.”
Well, it is a nice looking building.

Graffiti art. It’s bold. It’s thrilling. And it can get a girl into serious trouble….
Raised by her single mom (who’s always dating the wrong kind of man) in a struggling California neighborhood, Angel Rodriguez is a headstrong, independent young woman who channels her hopes and dreams for the future into her painting. But when her entry for a community mural doesn’t rate, she’s heartbroken. Even with winning artist Nathan Ramos — a senior track star and Angel’s secret crush — taking a sudden interest in Angel and her art, she’s angry and hurt. She’s determined to find her own place in the art world, her own way.
That’s when Miguel Badalin — from the notorious graffiti crew Reyes Del Norte — opens her eyes to an underground world of graf tags and turf wars. She’s blown away by this bad boy’s fantastic work and finds herself drawn to his dangerous charm. Soon she’s running with Miguel’s crew, pushing her skills to the limit and beginning to emerge as the artist she always dreamed she could be. But Nathan and Miguel are bitter enemies with a shared past, and choosing between them and their wildly different approaches to life and art means that Angel must decide what matters most before the artist inside of her can truly break free.
Or a double-team ensues…
