Fernando Miteff (Nic 707) was inside an empty subway car waiting for the go-ahead from a friend who stood sentry by an open door, scanning the platform for conductors, police officers or anyone else who might disrupt his plan.
“O.K.,” his friend said. “They’re not looking.”
Like a graffiti version of “The Taking of Pelham One Two Three,” Mr. Miteff and two friends sprang into action. After pulling painted plastic squares from a portfolio case and sliding them into empty advertising frames inside the car, they had transformed the unadorned silver interior into a rolling gallery featuring classic graffiti tags, bold warriors and colorful portraits.
