Is Idaho Train Car Graffiti Actually Beautiful Art? Check This Out!
Normally I hate when the trains make me stop on the south side of Twin Falls. Yesterday was an exception since I was the one who made myself stop and not the railroad crossing lights and drop-arms. We were heading to a friends house and my kids saw this train car with graffiti on it, but the graffiti was beautiful. My daughter and I had a conversation afterwards about whether graffiti is art, and normally I might argue that it isn't, but this job is clearly art.
What Graffiti Was on the Twin Falls Train Car?
My kids yelled in the car 'holy cow, did you see that picture of a lady on the train?!' and I assumed it was an inappropriate picture. Most of the time train-car tagging is words or names that don't make sense to me and the occasional questionable verbiage. This train car had the most beautiful and detailed painting of a lady I've seen on a car. Check it out below:
Who Painted the Train Car?
In a post on Facebook under the amazing photo taken by photographer Mackensie Griffith, people are saying the artwork was done by Young Jarus. Young Jarus has artwork all over the world and this particular train car has been seen all around the United States as you can see in the comments on his Instagram.
Has Young Jarus Done Any Other Train Cars?
