Freight Friday: The Vewer
We recently had the chance to catch up with Vew GI while he put in work on some freights. It’s always interesting to see where a writer will take his style next. Many like to step out of their comfort zone and Vew is no exception. From past conversations, we’ve gathered that he’s not totally content with one particular style, and that each piece he puts out is another part of his growth process as a graffiti writer.
Vew is as fascinated by freights as any of us. They’re one of the last forms of moving metal canvases in the graffiti world. A freight painted in New York can end up anywhere in North America, it’s pretty amazing if you think about it. Plus, you have the history of the lines and the culture surrounding them, not to mention the trains themselves, those giant metal beasts. All of this combines to make hitting freights one of our favorite things to get down with. Obviously Vew agrees.
