Artist Unknown or is this mural an advert? Actually, the latter. The Guggenheim uses this ten-point motivational sign to advertise the restrospective of Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss. According to the artists the original sign was found in a factory in Thailand. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

The sky poem along the top reads: That Morning / Everything / Remember? / Made of SKY / The hardpress of Avenues / Your hands / My day a checklist mingling with a cosmos / We have been in love / Since the invention of gazing at stars / I still whisper “We one day / will have to party”/

Futura dissed. This is Futura’s Houston/Bowery wall in Manhattan which we published as he was painting it. Honestly! Actually, now that you see the choice of black on grey and white on black, you may even say this is a collaboration. (photo © Jaime Rojo)


92. Apparently in fact there is no respect; Neither for the masters nor for the emerging artists. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Graffiti Coast-To-Coast on a Fleet of Trailers

Graffiti Coast-To-Coast on a Fleet of Trailers

It’s a rolling Street Art / graffiti museum as you fly down the highway and your car is suddenly surrounded by a fleet of 20 18-wheeler trucks all completely covered with pieces and tags.

– Or it will be as soon as a certain events company based in Denver, Colorado finishes plans to paint its entire fleet of 20 trailers with graffiti. It began last week in the Wynwood District in Miami when graffiti artists looking for a big slab of flat wall to paint asked the owners if they could get up on the three trailers parked outside one of the fairs.

Greg Lamarche, or SP One, told photographer Geoff Hargadon about his truck while he was up on a ladder spreading his signature pile-up of collaged letters across it while other guys were breaking out the cans on theirs. According to Hargadon, the event company liked the results so much that now they plan to extend the invitation to other artist in Los Angeles and San Francisco. “The plan now is to do the entire fleet,” says Geoff, “So…. imagine driving down Interstate 95 and you see a fleet of graffitti’d trailers. It would be f-ing AMAZING.”

It would be sort of like painting entire freight train cars, but out on the pavement. Just think of all the small pristine towns and villages that don’t have an opportunity to see large complex burners suddenly seeing a mobile gallery of graff one day and then, faster than you can sing a verse of “Travelin’ Man”, they’re headed up the road.

I’m up high and rolling coast-to-coast baby!
