Spray paint on British train tickets, hand finished with acrylic ink.

This is one of Johnman's renowned train ticket artworks depicting a walking hand-in-hand, balancing one another as they playfully walk along a railway track. The piece is entitled "The Glorious Morning When We Missed the Last Train Home" and symbolises life's journeys together and the joy and strength we form in unity.

The British Railway Ticket - A classic piece of iconic design soon to be confined to the history books in the digital age. Being non-recyclable (due to the metallic data strips within) I was keen to do something with the collection I'd acquired and was inspired by the rise of early New York Graffiti painted on the side of subway carriages. Hence, I've used Banksy-esque to adorn them with my designs but with a romantic as opposed to political message.

One of the things I love about painting on railway tickets is the dual aspect it gives the work. One can admire my artwork and its symbolism but with the use of opaque paints, the details printed on each ticket can still be seen. This leaves you wondering about the untold story of the immortalised journey printed upon each one.

Titled and signed en-verso along with the edition number and media used.

From a limited edition of 5 pieces, each slightly different due to the tickets used and loose, freestyle application of the acrylic ink.

Floated in a double mount within a black, wooden frame and ready to hang as pictured.
