REVOK x Detroit – New customized, limited edition book

REVOK is without doubt one of the most renowned graffiti writers on the planet. Although he’s traveled the world over, in his adopted hometown of Detroit, he’s been re-energized and has found grist for an entirely new form. This newer body of work, REVOK’s fantastic assemblages, are comprised of found materials from abandoned houses and buildings from throughout Detroit. These colorfully textured 3D collages are highly sought after and well documented in the book. Further, Made in Detroit contrasts the new thrust of his artistic output against a background of terrific on-location photography, cutting to the very soul of this enigmatic place. Printed in edition of 2500, every copy is individually spray painted by the artist.

164 pages, paperback, 8.5” x 11”.

Stay High 149, RIP

c0d2e65f22peace.jpg Stay High 149, RIP well as norman title sequence stick figure RIP headlines haloed graffiti writer from the title flash video flash faith book art

Stay High 149, one of the true original NYC graffiti legends, passed away at the age of 61. The New York Times, writes: Wayne Roberts was a pioneering 1970s graffiti writer known as “Stay High 149” who borrowed the haloed stick figure from the title sequence of the 1960s television series “The Saint,” put a joint in its mouth and turned it around. His “Smoker” tag, or signature, turned the heads of legions of imitators and admirers, including the anonymous teenagers who slipped into train yards at night to paint whole cars, as well as Norman Mailer, who featured him in his book “The Faith of Graffiti.”

Two really sad loses over the past 5 days, as yesterday we have lost Where the Wild Things Are author, Maurice Sendak, at the age of 83. He was seeing a bit of resurgence with his legacy over the past 4 years, with retrospectives in museums such as the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, as well as Spike Jonze taking his masterful children’s book to the screen with a wonderful, heartfelt interpretation.
