REVOK – Montana Cans -The Seventh Letter & 1xRUN present: The Detroit Beautification Project

As the chill of winter has given way to the warm hues of spring here in Detroit, we’re excited to unveil our most recent public arts project that will bring over a dozen of the world’s premier graffiti artists to the city of Detroit for a series of murals in the neighborhoods that need them the most.

We are presenting this never before seen image of a piece REVOK created in a now demolished church back in 2009 during his first visit to Detroit. In what is commonplace in the world of graffiti & street art, an artist will go to great lengths creating a piece of work in certain location, only to have the works lifespan cut short by city clean up crews, over zealous and mentally disturbed vigilantes or rival artists… Or in this case a demolition wrecking ball. The work often lives on only in the documentation of a few, or in this case one image.

Run #00213// Sacrilege by REVOK// Apr 17, 2012

To coincide with the first phase of the project we’re excited to release a series of prints with several of the participating artists including RISK, SEVER, STEEL, REYES, DMOTE, WANE, CES, REVOK, Tristan Eaton, Dabs Myla, 123 Klan and POSE.

For the first RUN of the Detroit Beautification Project we’re excited to present our very first print by REVOK “Sacrilege.”  REVOK’s  vision for the Detroit Beautification Project is to uplift communities and brighten the day of the residents of the great City of Detroit.

Revok In Los Angeles

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.

In 2011 REVOK was featured in MOCA LA’s in the “Art in the streets” Exhibition. The Pasadena Musuem of Contemporary art’s “Street Cred”, “PERSEVERANCE” at KNOWN gallery and “TRIUMPH & TRAGEDY” in Hamburg’s Vicious gallery.
