Coming from the yard - straight out of Verschiebebahnhöfe

"Coming from the yard - straight out of Verschiebebahnhöfe" is the first show at Neun Görlitz. This exhibition features works of train painting artists from Italy, Canada and Germany. Photography by Bozhidar Asenov from Bulgaria completes the exhibition .

Most of the works show the direct connection to the medium "train". The print "catching out" by Other reminds on "hobo-phantasies" - catching a train and getting some booze.Aris screenprint has a typical size of a panel and reminds on his colorrange of his trainworks.
Original Stencils by Shlomo Faber of the year 2003 are relicts of a long time ago trainpainting era. Framed as objects the stencil could be original artworks only made for hanging in a Gallery.
Lithographies of Zasu remind of the fast death of life and the fast cleaning of panels on trains.
Jens Besser met train painters on several interrail tours. He started to take pictures of them and made handdrawn "portraits" of them. The final result is a drawing series of more then 15 works on international train tickets.

The show is arranged by Jens Besser.

participating artists: Aris (Italy), Other (Canada), Bozhidar Asenov (Bulgaria), Zasu (Germany), Shlomo Faber (Germany) and Jens Besser (Germany).

Russian Propaganda

Because I'm not into the russian language I don't know what it means. I only heard that the painting on train is based on the picture of a demonstration in Russias far east region in Novosibirsk. Via thanx r.

Outliner Magazin III

"Just recently the dresden-based graffiti magazin Outliner published a big article about the exhibition urban script continues 2012 - Conceptual Vandalism .The article is completly in german, but a lot unplished trainworks are first time available printed in this magazin." I hope they continue to focus on the "non-writing" aspactes in train painting as well.

New Mexican Trainism

While the mexican muralism is one of the most interesting movements in the Art world ( especially Siqueiros who used a spray gun), the mexcian train scene seems to be underdeveloped.

Short Message Conversation

updated 1.11.2013 I really like the first one that says "Fuck your blog - www. I m a hipster and wanna be famous . com ". Since Streetfiles went done even more train painters started their own blogs by posting action pictures and finished works. Some people ( or just one ) of the train painters scene don't like this attitude ( or it seems like ). Unfortunatly the message is anonymous ( no tag , or direct link to the author ). I really would like to interview this guy ... all pictures via

A fresh new work by Vilx from Canada. I really like his works on freights. they are extremly detailed. The fragile drawings definatly fit perfect on old, scrabbed freights of the northern freight system. Check out his whole flickr-stream - amazing stuff on freights.
