"Eventually I kind of came to this realization that I wasn’t interested into trying to recreate what it is I do outdoors. I am much more interested in the world itself that I have been submerged in for the last 23 years while painting and exploring the cities I have traveled to and lived in, not what it is I personally have been doing, but what I have been experiencing. The idea of creating work reflecting my personal graffiti “style” or something like that wasn’t interesting. I find graffiti much more engaging when it is graffiti. When you try to make it anything else I think you lose what makes it relevant and interesting in the first place.
Since I came to Detroit two years ago I’ve been making these assemblage pieces that are composed of bits and pieces of the city, it has definitely been a moment in time, and now it is nearly done. I made this body of work from here, about here, all made while I was living here and now I’m leaving, so that’s going to be finished. This will be the only print that I’m going to produce of this body of work. When it’s done, it’s done." - REVOK
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Revok and 1xRUN.
Born in Riverside, California in 1977, Los Angeles based artist REVOK discovered art through his father's collection of 60's & 70's album covers, comic books, and skateboarding. In 1990 REVOK began sneaking out of the 2nd story window of his parents home to write graffiti around his neighborhood...21 years later not much has changed despite numerous arrests, jail time and fines in the U.S. and overseas.
REVOK enjoys traveling and painting graffiti. He was recently the target of a political war against graffiti and street art led by Los Angeles city attorney Carmen Trutanich and the L.A. Sheriffs department. His work explores the struggle between opposing perspectives that is perpetual action around us in our shared common spaces.
In 2011 REVOK was featured in Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles' in the "Art In The Streets" exhibition. The Pasadena Museum of Contemporary art's "Street Cred", "Perseverance" at KNOWN gallery and "Triumph & Tragedy" in Hamburg's Vicious gallery. REVOK's latest body of work "Ordinary Things" features dozens of assemblages created with pieces of Detroit's lost and forgotten areas. The recent body work has been shown over the past 6 months to worldwide acclaim at galleries in Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and London.
