As a graffiti train writer you are always happy if you don’t have to run away from your unfinished piece. If your able to catch your piece running the day after so you can get your traffic photos during rush hour you’re even more happy. Our new video series called RUNNERS is focused on graffiti on trains and for each episode we will feature actions and traffic videos from a selected writer or team of writers. In this second episode we hooked up with Utah & Ether, check it out!
Manila is known to most for the poverty, corruption and violence that emanates throughout the capitol city. For Utah and Ether however, it is known for only one thing; the metro system. Since the Manila metro bombings in 2000 security checks, K-9 units and armed police officers have been mandatory in every metro depot and station. This video marks the first graffiti hit on the LRT 2, the only line running heavy rail metro vehicles on this system. The LRT 2 train carriages feature uniquely beautiful yellow and purple details, making it a rare trophy coveted by subway writers around the world.
