Between 2008 and 2010 two already well-known names were hitting trains, walls and all respective web portals with an amount, that was far beyond believe: Taps & Moses. There must be no writer in Europe, who was not catching at least 100 of their pieces by coincidence – and if so, he must be living on the moon or mars, got no internet connection or is just blind.
It seems to be part of the program that no one knows who and how many people actually hide behind those aliases. Using an unbelievable cleverness, the International Topsprayer send 1000 worldwide rolling trains within 1000 days into the game – the boys seemed to be far ahead all party poopers in the game of graffiti and this way they raised the levels on what can be done by a good jump.
With a whole lot of style – some thoughts for jokes and a good amount of brains – a nice pile of burners were generated within this time, which will definitely go to the train-graffiti-hall-of-fame in case it’s not already there. Next to the “normal” style-writing pieces, some exceptional productions came to life. It appears that a subway car had one of its doors painted to another spot after being put to sleep in the layup for the night.
Rumours are that only 5% of the existing material made its way to the public so far – and that’s why we are very exited to see what the missing 95% keep back for surprises and burners.
The most awaited blackbook of these days will feature on 288 pages storming 800 photographies as well as detailed text – which will be entertaining and critical as expected. Next to the main actors, some guest authors like Peter Michalski (art historian) or Dr. Patrick Gau (specialist solicitor in criminal law) join the party.

All i can say is this is vandalism at it's finest. (well it can barely be
classed as vandalism when graffiti like this is done with more
class than advertisements you see these days)
Genius ideas and slick execution these guys definitely break out of
the every day routine with styles for miles, crazy energy and an
appetite for some fine ass graffiti funk...
