Underneath the Tracks…

Underneath some abandoned railroad tracks is some amazing street art that is hidden from most prying eyes. Another tagger’s paradise, this one has gotten more and more difficult to get into. O.D.D.Ball and Tober have been here, along with Shock, Hank, Seka, and countless others! The pieces here are incredible, and its a real treat to get to see!

Shock Hank: The Legend?

Shock Hank: The Legend?

Shock Hank is an old-school tagger… and we know nothing about him.

After some internet research, all we know is that this guy gets around. We found this piece around Juniper and Sansom, and some questions were left with us: Did he do the mural, or just tag the top of it? Was it just doing something for the sake of the score? I’ve seen this around for nearly 10 years, and its never been cleaned or changed, unlike that Shepard Fairey piece in Fishtown.

So, does anyone else have any info here? Or is it just as simple just another tag?

EDIT: Thanks to our commenter on the help! Shock and Hank are two separate taggers.
