Podcast #003 – Razor – Colors On Steel (COS Crew)

For their third Podcast they spoke to Razor from the COS crew. The graffiti writer from Kiel made a name for himself in the nineties with well-thought-out pieces on trains and is still one of the most important minds in the North German graffiti movement. Not only because Razor has been highly active again in the past 10 years, but also because the way he does his trains is still remarkably striking today.
