Graffiti writers have long defaced New York City’s MTA subway cars with their hand tags, throwies, and even “scratchitti” — a term to describe when a writer would use a sharp object to etch their tag on an NYC train car’s bulletproof windows. Those caught in the act, would be hit with a pretty sizable fine of $75 USD as per the New York City Transit. So, it comes as a surprise that the MTA would join forces with graffiti heavyweight KRINK on an all-new collaborative paint marker set.

The MTA x Krink K-42 paint marker set features 10 official MTA Subway colors from the actual train logos. Each marker is filled with alcohol-based paint which the art supplier confirms is “excellent for use on glass, metal, coated paper, and painted surfaces,” as per a press statement.

View the set above and visit KRINK’s website for further details.

Elsewhere in art, St. Louis-based artist Lauren Marx will showcase detailed works of flora and fauna at a new Los Angeles exhibition.
