..... sits and waits.....
You're right about that but I have never seen or heard the Singapore MRT getting bombed. One thing the penalties are severe in SG if you get caught. Most likely those who will attempt to paint the MRT are die-hard writers from other countries instead of local Singaporeans.

But neighbouring Malaysia had some bombed trains

Our LRT trains have surprisingly little graffiti. I think that is due to the fact that so few highschool kids ride the LRT.

Sometimes I see trains or subways with little graffiti, Paris has some problem with that, but it is not bad as Rome.

There's isn't as much graffiti on the trains in Copenhagen as there used to be in the nineties but still I see pieces like every time I go on a train.
It seems like the MOA crew that used to do the most graffiti on the trains in Copenhagen aren't that active anymore.

VIM (Stockholm) MOA (Copenhagen) and ALL (Oslo) pieces on NY-trains

Problem? Graffiti makes a grey urban world shiny. There is no liveable art like streetart!

That must have cost a lot of graffiti! The trains and stations in Berlin look horrible some people just really ruin it. Trains in Rotterdam are mostly grafitti free so are the stations, is does look a lot better when they are grafitti free.

I think the MOAS are more into interrails now or inter-city transit. The only thing I don't like about this crew is they prefer writing their crew name instead of their individual tag names. Anyway, here is embed

I'd agree. The complex artistic stuff is really cool and interesting. I'd almost want to let the artist guys have a few trains to take their time on and do an even more kick ass job, like a mural train (but maybe that takes some of the thrill out of it?). I think people would be less likely to do the stupid carving your name in the window crap if there were real art work too. Any subway systems actually have a program like that?

Not a metro system but they had a mural art program in Brazil especially in Sao Paulo's commuter trains. Those who participated were some of the most prominent Sampa graf writers like Os Gemeos and Nina.



They also had a similar program in the Cape Town metro.

I think that is what makes that crew so great - everybody that knows about train-graffiti knows about the MOAS, cause they are like everywhere.
But then again not many knows who are MOA members. Think the most famous is ATOM from Germany and the former member KEGR from Copenhagen (who doesn't make trains anymore - but is like everywhere in the streets of Copenhagen).

MOA must be the largest graf crew in Denmark or even in Scandinavia.

A friend of mine is now living in HK but was originally from Copenhagen. He writes Dofi and is from the TWO crew. He knows some of the MOAS writers.

Here are some of this stuff

Would you alone have bashed their skulls in? Think people are afraid to do something when they walk by alone. I don't think it's because people don't care, I just think they are afraid to do something.

One thing, some of these writers have guts to do it in the open public such as the ones in Europe.
