"I have an affinity for painting on trains and I wanted to capture the feeling and the aesthetic of this action. So often many aspects of graffiti are spotlighted, but the act of bombing, the classic action-shot, is less so and for me that is the best part. Graffiti writing has been a defining part of my life and I wanted to express the way I experienced it. I drew upon old photos and developed them into my current style of what I've been calling Post-Graffiti Impressionism.
I executed this piece just like painting a train, freehand with spray paint and as quickly as possible." - Case MacKeen
