Revok x Seventh Letter LA Billboard ProjectJuxtapoz // Monday, 12 Oct 2009
Revok and the Seventh Letter Crew (Juxtapoz #78) have given Los Angeles (another) an uppercut of graffiti greatness. An instillation of original hand painted billboards in Los Angeles featuring work from the world’s most renowned graffiti artists provides a teaser of what’s to come to the land down under at the “Clash of the Titans” Contest at the end of this month.
The project is a result of many days and many minds coming together graffiti spirit to bring one extraordinary event concept to life.
The billboards are located at 3rd St/ Fairfax and Sunset/Alta Vista will be profiled throughout the month of October, and highlight the works of amazing artists REVOK, RIME, RETNA, RISK, EWOK, AUGOR, ABEL, and WITNES.
“Both the Clash of the Titans event and the creation of the billboards in LA are dream projects that my friends and I sat around having “what if” conversations about for years… a way to bring our underappreciated and often misunderstood art form to the masses in a light in which hopefully they can value is both an honor and a privilege.” - REVOK
