Names gives a glimpse into the international network of illegal graffiti artists through the artwork of Same, one of Europe’s most prolific writers. In 2015, Same set out to paint the ʻnamesʼ of the friends he’s made during his extensive travels around the world. Using the Dutch commuter system as his canvas, the result of Same’s efforts is this compilation of photographs and memories.
