Description

Celebrated American graffiti writer Revok’s innovative paintings explore color, pattern, and shape through the use of techniques that appear at once exact and haphazard, often adorning precisely cut geometric supports with repetitive, shaky streaks of aerosol paint. In 'Untitled (Diamond),' with its clearly delineated shapes and carefully applied layers of pigment, Revok’s aptitude for precision comes to the fore.

About Revok

Revok (American, b. 1977) alias of Jason Williams, is an American artist closely associated with the street art movement. He draws inspiration from 1960’s and 1970’s album covers, comic books, and skateboards. From an early age he exhibited a predilection towards graffiti culture, as he would frequently sneak from his home at age 13 to draw graffiti in his neighborhood. Recently, he has been the subject of a lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles regarding the criminalization of graffiti art. His work commonly explores a struggle for survival and oppositional sides. He is a member of The Seventh Letter, an acclaimed West Coast artist collective and Mad Society Kings (MSK), a world-renowned graffiti crew. He currently lives and works in Detroit, Michigan.
