Radio Juxtapoz, ep 125: Tim Conlon Knows Freight Train Graffiti

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

There are just certain artists who know their subject. For Tim Conlon, freight train graffiti is his muse, his subject, his love, his investigation. As a freight graffiti artist himself, Tim took that passion and understanding of the North American railroad system and turned into wonderfully constructed photoreal paintings of graff on trains as well as a series of train set works featuring graffiti pieces. His work is about not only a love of graffiti, but a story of movement, of communication and connection, friendship and the insight to a subculture of America that collect rail ephemera. It’s a story of the industrial revolution, but also of the power of moving art.
