I love catching the train, that is at a railroad crossing here in Orlando. Some of the more exciting artists today proudly display their talent on the train cars, aka graffiti. According to www.thefreedictonary.com, graffiti is drawings or inscriptions made on a wall or other surface, usually without permission and so as to be seen by the public.
While this definition is correct, I think the work is much more than graffiti but a true expression of art. Even some graffiti that has been created on canvass has sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. You can certainly buy a lot of brick walls for that kind of money.
So the next time you catch a long train (if real luck in Orlando), sit back and enjoy the art. The talent that rolls by is amazing!!!
Love the graffiti and see you next month, Tom
