Who is NEKST?

Graffiti // Sunday, April 13, 2014
It's nice to see the news talk about graffiti in a positive way for a change. Recently KHOU ran a piece about legendary writer Nekst who passed away in December 2012. His family and friends talk about his legacy and how they're keeping his name alive.

Video: Building Detroit - Nekst x Revok x Pose

Graffiti // Wednesday, January 08, 2014
In the past few years, with the influence of people like Revok exposing the possibilities the city offers, Detroit has become a spray-painting destination for domestic and international writers. The city is everything you would expect (rundown, dilapidated, dangerous, etc), but also has amazing resources available and is having a rebirth of creativity in many ways. In this new video produced by MOCA, Revok and Pose share their thoughts and enthusiasm on Detroit, all while painting two massive Nekst tribute pieces on the exterior of the MOCAD with the help of others.

Graffiti // Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Since 2007, two giant Amaze throw ups adorned the exterior of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, until this week, when Nekst was remembered by the help of his friends with a giant straight letter and throw up. Now the buildings background is a blood red and massive chrome Nekst's greet all who pass by.
