216 pages. Paperback. The works presented in this book no longer exist - they are all gone for good, washed off the sides of the trains, sometimes hours after they were first created. Often what remains is just a photo, a final remnant of something that took a great deal of skill, courage, and determination to create.
Kristian Kutschera presents the most comprehensive collection of art ever created on Europe's transit systems, with highlights of the past 25 years. Her task was not unlike a treasure hunt, involving a series of conspiratorial meetings and the subsequent arrival of mysterious, unmarked packages.
Inspired by the iconic 1980s book, SUBWAY ART, the painting of trains in Europe continues to flourish. Action Painting gives profound insight into the adventures, techniques, ethics and passion behind this amazing and dangerous art form.
