Trains Of Thought is a new show that features the most talented and fresh artists in the graffiti art field. The artists featured in this show have the most extensive history and talent in the graffiti community. They will be applying their skills to Giclee Trains that will be exhibited in the show, and the subjects they choose are their original thoughts.
Artists from New York City, Montreal, and all over the world will be featured in this exhibit. 60+ artists will be featured all together in this exhibit, and they will school you!
Painting a train has traditionally been something special to a graffiti writer, and is a phenomenon that is something to bare witness of. The thoughts that are being laid onto these pieces of art are exceptional and some just sophisticatedly simple.
Come see the Installations, sculptures, paintings, photographs, sketches and studies, limited edition prints and products that will be available at this show.
