Rail Art by Artur Bordalo

Artur Bordalo is a graffiti artist whose work has definitely raised the bar on railroad art. Using the parallel lines of a railroad as a canvas, Arturo has managed to convey both humor and cynicism into his minimalistic work. His often uses bright neon colors in his work to make it stand out against the gray backdrop of gravel and rail. He goes by the handle Bordalo II as a tribute to his grandfather whom he saw ‘painting the city of Lisbon’. Arturo’s work has been cropping up all over his homeland of Portugal and train officials don’t seem to mind since spray paint doesn’t seem to do the rails themselves any harm.
