Every day trains fly by heading for a place unknown by me. It’s not the trains, but the dazzling, colorful feast for my eyes that grabs for attention and gets it. There’s dichotomy with an illegal form of art that fascinates using every trick and angle to convey the gamut of human emotions from comedy, whimsy, and elegance to brash, raunchy and raw. This is freight art, but I call it a moving art show that presents itself to me whenever I’m in the right place at the right time and take a few moments to view and appreciate the forms, patterns, and color that move down the rails.
Let me take you on a tour of where country meets city through the ever-changing mobile art show…a magical, moving feast for the eyes.
I've taken over 200 images of the art on the trains that pass this way. I've also done a bit of research on where it all comes from, a bit about the history and I hope to discover more about the artists that create the moving art show. So the next time you see a train, take a moment to really look at the graffiti and you may just discover a moving feast for your eyes.
I'm delighted that you enjoy my words and photography. I spend time writing stories, taking photographs, and tweaking my creations. Using either text or photos without express permission from me is a no-no. Send me an email at email@example.com and I'll be happy to discuss your wants/needs.
