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!

New Shots Miami 2012 Update

As the crowd rolls in, the walls are already up – sometimes by night, sometimes by beer.

And a curious thing is happening for the first time during Basel madness; available walls are getting scarce. Artists who came ready to paint are finding it kind of hard to get a spot. You used to lock your doors and duck riding through some of these streets and now there is an occasional traffic jam and lanyard wearing looky-loos mixing with tattooed mustachioed skater dudes and artfully nerdish babes are around every sunbaked corner. As usual, the best way to see the Street Art is to walk, or skateboard. You never know what you will find, or who you’ll see and if you are chill, you’ll realize it’s alllllll good. Here’s a couple of new shots.

“I got lucky, I painted a wall right up from the Wynwood Museum. This is my first time using almost entirely brushes with just hints of spray paint. 2501 asked me “,Why don’t you just paint large the way you do your canvas work?” … I didn’t have an answer so I figured I would try… I really like how it turned out and think I might be sticking with this style,” says Stefan Ways.
