NIRO, SLAP & LIGISD (SWEDEN) VERSUS ‘VERDE UFO’ (UFO GREEN)
Three for the price of one is the deal we got in our latest edition of Versus! No one less than NIRO WUFC and his mates SLAP and LIGISD gets down on the tracks to confront our green color Verde Ufo. The mission: a freight train. This original video in the style of a mid 20th century documentary has its focus on the vintage feeling and romantic atmosphere of being around freight trains. This together with three different swedish styles of the most authentic character makes the result of this episode completely outstanding. Ladies and gentlemen…. Enjoy the show!
AMEND (CALIFORNIA) VERSUS ‘ROJO MERLOT’
The VERSUS project has crossed the ocean and came ashore over in the United States. Californian writer AMEND chose to confront our ‘Merlot Red’, one of the colors on our Hardcore 2 scale which in no time has become a classic due to its nice garnet tone and high potential in covering.

MAMÓN (MADRID) VERSUS ‘MARRÓN GALGO’
If you thought that the challenge of our project VERSUS would not visit Madrid, you have been wrong… Our ‘Marrón Galgo’ (Greyhound Brown) fell into the hands of our friend MAMÓN.

BOING (ATHENS, GREECE) VERSUS ‘VIOLETA BRUJA’ (WITCH VIOLET)
Greece is one of the countries in Europe with a culture of train-writing that should not be forgotten about. One of the reason for this must, with no doubt, be the beautiful metro of Athens. Famous for being hard to paint, it now seems like things has slightly changed over the last two years. However it is, the Athens model of metro is a desire of many writers, all which surely has looked upon the pieces of Boing on its metal panels with envy. And it is Boing alone which will try out our Violeta Bruja (‘Witch Violet’) when he represents greek graffiti in this next episode of Versus! Lets see how he does!
CEKIOS (SYDNEY) VERSUS ‘PATAGONIA BLUE’ (AZUL PATAGONIA)
Our PATAGONIA BLUE has travelled all the way to Australia where it ended up in the hands of CEKIOS. No one less than him is who’s next in line for our VERSUS project, the challenge of painting with one color only out of our MTN Hardcore range. Don’t miss this exciting train action from Sydney!

Tension and tranquility are mixed together in this latest episode of Versus which ends with EXIT fantastic creation rolling around in traffic.
BRUS (ROME) VERSUS ‘PANGEA BROWN’
This last episode of our VERSUS project is like taken from a dream.
