“Machine Type AW177” Custom All City Style Train
A tribute to the old school NYC redbird subway cars and a reminder that you pilot your own fate, customized on The All City Style 20″ subway train “canvas”.
The All City Style 20″ long subway train “canvas” allows artists to express themselves freely while paying tribute to the movement and culture that inspired a generation. Mine is a homage to the awesome colors and styles of the graffiti trains back in the day, as well as an expression to always pilot your own fate.
I used to take those MTA redbird trains all the time and wanted to put a bit of my own experience riding them into my piece.
“Machine Type AW177” is part of an “exhibition of painted subway trains which opens November 22 in Grand Central Terminal . Bigshot Toyworks and PIQ Products present All City Style: The Grand Slam, an art show of one-of-a-kind custom painted All City Style subway train models.
