Known Gallery in LA just passed along a few teaser images of their upcoming exhibition, Gilgamesh, with Detroit-based REVOK. We last spoke to REVOK in our special Public Art Issue in May 2012, and we anticipate another chapter in the artist's work with collaging found wood, especially now that the artist is working in a city of transformation such as Detroit.

Revok’s presence in graffiti is undeniably one of the strongest and he just keeps getting better. His inside work is equally as interesting as his outside work and his solo exhibition “Gilgamesh” will surely be a show worth visiting.

Which makes it sort of an exhibition fire sale if we were being clear.
