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.

"In 2012 the Graffiti world lost a great. NEKST will be missed forever for his bold and unrelenting style. His name will always be synonymous with what a true graffiti writer is. A group of friends gathered in Detroit to reproduce NEKST'S John Hancock on the front of the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art." The memorial was painted by Vizie, Pose, Revok, Omens, Screw and Dont.

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.
