EWOK 5MH "Untitled" Trains of Thought

EWOK 5MH  – "Untitled” Trains of Thought. 2011. Acrylic/paint markers over Giclee train on art paper. Size approx 36″ × 9″.

Graffiti on trains has always been a controversial medium, and this has certainly been one of the reasons that has made the form controversial and has brought such popularity to the movement.Although there have been many arguments about graffiti on trains,

the train has been the medium of choice for the ‘Graffiti Writer’. It is something that has been a vital part of the New York transit history, 
that often is spoke about by many of those who have had the experience to witness the works displayed on the subway system of New York.

"Trains of Thought" has re- captured the true attitude of graffiti once again, by placing original art form on trains!
An archival pigment print of a railcar placed on acid free museum quality paper was distributed out to numerous artists. Each artist then creates an original artistic rendition of whatever it is their ‘thoughts’ would take them.

These ‘train cars’ are beautifully adorned with mixed mediums and have been creatively hand embellished by the most talented New York Graffiti masters of yesterday and today.


About the Artist



An adventurous and only child born in New Jersey in 1976. Relocated in 1979 with his single, hardworking mother to upstate New York (The Catskills/Hudson Valley) where he was raised and again relocated in the Fall of 1996 as a young adult to Brooklyn. In pursuit of furthering his art education, his portfolio was reviewed at a cafeteria lunch table at Pratt Institute. After enrolling, he was trained in Color, Anatomy, Drawing, Painting, History, and Philosophy over the next 4 years. In 2000, he received his Bachelors Degree in Traditional Hand Drawn Animation. This particular academic focus would prove to play a pivotal role in the development of his unique "cartoony" caricature style he is most recognized for today. His work can be found showcased on the covers of many culturally significant books, like 'Graffiti New York' by Eric Felisbret, and 'NYC Graffiti, The Next Stage' by Rico Nose. His work has graced the covers of and has been featured in more than a 100 magazines and books worldwide.

Among his accolades, by no means has he been given an easy path to where he is today. Along his journey, he's had to make some hard sacrifices at the expense of his own freedom and personal relationships. Today, Mr. Ewokone has become a household name and a representational embodiment of his generation. A 90s era Graffiti Vandal continuing on his path to become a professional illustrator and a globally sought-after fine artist whose paintings fetch anywhere in the 10s of thousands of dollars. He is a proud bi-product of New York City and the East Coast that raised him. He's been very fortunate to travel the globe over the last 25 years pursuing his goals and ambitions through the vehicle of artistic expression.

In 2014, he lives and creates out of a studio apartment in Brooklyn New York, where he continues on his journey embracing the unknown and welcoming the unfamiliar, along with his intern/side kick, the now infamous Lt. Shiny Sides.
