Graffiti meets Thalys Photos

As I wrote two days ago, international high-speed train operator Thalys invited me to document the “Graffiti meets Thalys” live event, which took place at “Gare du Nord” (North Station) in Paris yesterday.

Four Six well-known and famous European writersSeak One (Cologne), Sozy One (Brussels), JonOne 156 (Paris) and Zedz (Amsterdam) – had to paint a train as fast as Thalys will soon take to get from Paris to Cologne or Amsterdam, 3 hours and 15 minutes.

It was a great graffiti event! I took about 600 photos, spoke to Seak One and JonOne 156, who are really nice guy and had a nice time with other selected bloggers and journalists from Germany, France, Belgium, Holland and the USA.

You want photos? Here they are (more on Flickr):

Oh, by the way, the CEO of Thalys, Olivier Poitrenaud, said, that one reason for this event was, that Thalys doesn’t have a problem with graffiti on trains…
