Graffiti Art Commissioned on European Train

Jon One 156
The Thalys highspeed train parked in Paris' Gar du Nord is due for some retouching this September. Thalys, whose trains service France, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, commissioned Graffiti artists Jon One 156, SEAK, Sozy, and Zedz to create a series of custom works on their cars. The project, titled Wholetrain, is a giant step towards the legitimization of graffiti art in Europe. In an interview Jon One acknowledged the progressive stance of the European Government, “Only in Europe…Maybe NYC will pay homage to the old school one day." The Wholetrain will run between Paris, Cologne, Brussels, and Amsterdam.
