Swampy 1_48

On Saturday, July 25, we headed over to Chandran Gallery in San Francisco and checked out the new exhibition and book release from Swampy, both titled NBD (Northbound).

The elusive train-hopping graffiti artist and photographer has been quiet for a few years until starting an Instagram account a few months ago. Since then, he’s worked and created a new book of photos, essays, and stories that document his travels around North America.

For those of you not familiar with Swampy’s work, go and check it out! Oh, and be sure to head on over to the galleries website and pick up a copy of the newly release photo book. Its an absolute must have!
