RAP (UV-TPK) discovered graffiti in ’88 and has been a part of the Parisian train writing scene since. With a graff career that spans over twenty years, the artist has collated a huge archive of film from the suburban lines in Paris.
The Graffalife books and zines cover vast periods of graffiti action in Paris; particularly the infamous RER line and the runners and whole cars that passed through Saint Lazare in the ‘90s.
In documenting the fast-paced and ever-changing graffiti scene, RAP hopes to “save” the tags and throws found in the tunnels of Paris. He is preserving train writing history in his books, which he edits and publishes himself, whilst he continues to update the Graffalife blog regularly with original content.
