Three young artists Jack Gilbert, 23, Alberto Fresneda Carrasco, 19, and Harrison Scott-Hood, 23, were tragically found to have lost their lives on the tracks near Loughborough Junction station on Monday. This news was deeply upsetting to me and those around me, even though we didn’t know them personally. Powerful positive messages flooded social media from international graffiti artists, the British graffiti community and appreciators of graffiti art alongside the general public, saddened by the thought of these creative young men losing their lives in such unthinkably tragic circumstances. 

We would like Transport for London, National Rail, British Transport Police and Local Authorities to provide well placed, safe, permitted graffiti spots at points across Greater London and ideally across the United Kingdom in the highest risk near trackside locations as a tribute to these young men, also known as Trip, K Bag and Lover. Through consultation with the graffiti community this would have the potential to greatly reduce significant risks whilst supporting art and graffiti culture.
