Burners are pieces with elaborate interlocking lettering that “burned” all the other pieces on the train; when I was a kid, it was done in a wildstyle. It’s that piece that stands out in front of the pack. It now seems to be a term that is over used because the traditions of graffiti have been lost, there’s no true mentorship anymore and people forget that that burner is more than just vibrant colors. It’s the whole package – letters, style and color.
