The Art of Revok for The Detroit Beautification Project

Born in Riverside, Ca. in 1977 Los Angeles based REVOK discovered art through his fathers 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 is currently 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. REVOK’s work explores the struggle between opposing perspectives that is perpetual action around us in our shared common spaces.

Revok did this wall with Flying Fortress with the blessing of the city.
