The artist reception will take place on Friday, November 2 from 8–10pm.
Never in the history of art has a new genre become so adventurous, honest and powerful in such a short time. The artist REVOK sits at the forefront of this movement. His dedication, skill and determination have garnered him the respect and adoration of his peers. His meticulous attention to detail and willingness to step outside of the lines and his comfort zone not only make him a rebel, but a leader, a pathfinder and a trailblazer in the graffiti art world. Now as a fine artist, REVOK does this with grace and craftsmanship. Rearranging the memories, messages, words, warnings, colors and textures into coherent patterns with an honest and meaningful message.
These most recent works by REVOK are of particular importance for the city we call home, the city adopted by this artist. Each work consists of material cultivated and cultured in the city of Detroit. Each piece masterfully placed among its neighbors to tell a story of growth, inspiration and triumph. Each piece displaced from an urban tomb and certain death, given new life in a work of art that reminds us, exactly how beautiful this city is. It signifies a rebirth of rebirth, a preservation of decay, encapsulating time and propelling it into a new age.
