Other zice

"Other is a canadian born nomad…he is a descendant of the street art world…his work originated 18 years ago from the generic “hip-hop” graffiti scene of the 1990s in north america…and slowly found its place in the freight train yards of north america…becoming a hybrid of “graffiti” and an old form of “hobo art” which as been drawn on the sides of boxcars by transients and train workers since the mid 1850’s…while his biggest body of work travels the rails from canada all the way down to mexico…the artist himself wanders from country to country to leave little bits of himself scattered across the world a trail of aerosol …acrylic paint…oil sticks...even chalk…anything that will leave a mark…"
