Steel Wheels is a tight knit network of enthusiasts devoted to preserving and celebrating the culture of aerosol art on trains. Beginning with the prolific masterpieces that colored the New York City Subways to their counterparts on the American Railroad that are now traveling from coast to coast.
For the 2013 installment of the Steel Wheels Art Exhibition a new element was added. The SW Crew introduced Steel Heels, the first exhibition of it’s kind featuring aerosol art on high heels and various styles of the women’s platform shoe. The video was filmed over four days during production and throughout the show. Multiple time lapses were shot with a Go Pro Black Edition. Additional stills and video were shot using a Nikon D600. Editing was completed with Final Cut Pro X.
