Meta is one of the rare Street Artists in my city who’s work is absolutely original. He inittiated a spontaneous project, after finding a book with pictures of trains in a pile of rubbish on the streets. He forwarded all of the countless fantastic images of real and model trains to many of his Graffiti and Street Art colleagues. I was lucky to be able to pick a train from the book and the SNCF Jouef BB 26000 locomotive immediately caught my attention with the vision of a brick-ified version. The project sat on my desk for about two years before recently I managed to make my version.
I concentrated on the basic shape, the color scheme and some distinct details. As just copying something in existence does not attract me, I decided to implement two twists. First of all I wanted to break the train while keeping the shape. Secondary I included my alias into the sides of the trains, referring to Graffiti and the expression bombing a train.

Belief has many forms. Some believe in brands, others in a manifest. All three large religions – muslims, jews and christians – have the same origin and share similar values. Even more the categoric imperative is an integral part of every religion. The fundamentals who kill in the name of their god abuse religion for their personal mordlust. True believers are liberal, they are open-minded and don’t force their opinion upon others. May creativity and art unite!
