I am part of this world. This is the message I want to say. And, as I said before, it is also about competition: ‘ I did two pieces more than you’means that I am in the street, at the station. […] I like to paint a train, because the train is always moving, it gives me an idea of travelling. People who travel, foreigners, they see my graffiti. It’s a way for me to be there - Philo

When I paint a wall it is different, it’s always good feelings, but less then a train. I really like to paint trains, because it’s me travelling, it’s me moving, it’s beautiful - Philo

THESIS ABOUT EUROPEAN GRAFFITI WRITERS WITH RENOK, HERO, PHILO, RAW, EDGE, LUTHER, HIROCK, MIRICS, MARS, TWICE, GEAR, SOME, REVS AND ASO.

Some trains are kind of worth more. When writers meet they talk about different trains and different train yards where they’ve been. When you meet a new writer, you always have some places or trains to identify with and talk around. Local trains are generally more worth painting. For example the old Dutch banana train (the yellow one floor train called ‘doggie’), the Spanish ‘mirror trains’, Berlin’s yellow subway, Southern Sweden’s purple trains or Danish’s old red S-train. People used to go to Copenhagen just to paint that one. [Aso – 26, Stockholm]
