Finished Styracasubway painting

styracasubway final

This is the finished Styracasubway painting. As is the case with all my painted pieces, my initial worry that it wouldn't turn out how I wanted wasn't needed as got there in the end. I like how the paint looks like a cross between water and fur.

The inspiration for the piece came from spending alot of time looking back through the Subway Art book and also watching a few clips of Style Wars. I have it on the painting that the subway cars are sort of swept up in a sea of paint and colour. This is kind of representing the Writers pieces adding colour to the trains. I guess the fact that the piece is a huge unstoppable monstrous beast represents Graff....

"To some it's art. To most people it's a plague that never ends."

"When you first against a train, it's like everything seems so big, like, wow! It's like you're in a yard of like metal giant, like I mean everything is like so hard and so steel like you're just there. You're like a little dude like in the midst of these metals and like you're here to produce something, well, like you're here to try to produce something." - Dondi

A big thankyou for the comments, advice and encouragement on creating this beastie. Infact, thanks loads to all who have commented on my stuff on here before - really appreciate it.
