As a part of the ongoing ArtUnitedUs project, Kenor recently spent some time in Kiev, Ukraine, creating his contribution for the event. Taking a bit different angle to the concept, Catalan artist painted a whole metro train marking the Kyiv Day 2016.

Through his abstract geo work, the artist shows his appreciation for the music that motivates his creativity – techno. The composition of the train in this sense represents the tune, while the objects and shapes in vivid colors represent the beats and other elements of the music. Also, participating in one of the largest public art events, Kenor wanted to pay homage to the subway art culture from which graffiti as we know it evolved. The painted train is fully functional transporting the citizens of Kiev on their daily commute.

This project was curated by Geo Leros, Iryna Kanishcheva, Waone Interesni Kazki and Ilya Sagaidak, and we have more photos by Geo Leros and drone shots by Anton Kuleba after the jump.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
