DISZ ONE (156-FC-FBA) train, Berlin 1993

DISZ ONE (156-FC-FBA) is a Oldschool Writer from Holland(Dutch), who belongs to the first European Generation. He lived in Berlin several Years and is one of the Co-authors, of the first Berlin book about Writing called "Spraycity" from 1994. Beside that he is a writer, he is also a Photographer and a big Fan and Collector of "van Bode" items.
In the book SpraycanArt you can find him in the Intro story, where they ask about him: "What makes a man from the Hague, painting trains in New York?!.". Well, he was there and he painted some trains together with KASE2 (R.i.P.) and others like MIN and WEST. Probably he was the first European Writer who painted the surfaces of the New York Subway in the mid 80'ties.

During the work on the Spraycity book in 1993, we became closer contact and one day he said to me, that he wanted to paint a train in Berlin. First, I was thinking about if maybe it would be a problem for him to escape, if there is a raid in the Yard, because he was kind of a old man. But we, together with SOK (RCB-TFB) and Khan (GHS), then took him with us. Then in the Yard while painting, I think he was getting New York flashbacks, because he started to tell me that he likes to take a break and to lay down on the gras over there to smoke a cigarette and to deliberate about his Piece. I said to him: o.k. but after the cigarette you have to finish your piece so that we can leave the Yard, they are still workers running around on the other side of the train. After finishing the pieces, due to the workers we decided to take pictures later and catch the train, early on the line. But the end-to-end went never on the line, so we just walked inside the Buff, about 10 in the morning but we already came to late. Just D I S from DISZ was readable and the top of KHAN's piece on the left. The rest had already be buffed. They had some students to clean the train. The lady in red said: It looked really beautiful, like Art. Sad that we have to clean it bla bla bla...
