Preview: Revok "Los Angeles" w/Library Street Collective @ 1242 Palmetto Street, Downtown Los AngelesJuxtapoz // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Detroit-based contemporary art gallery, LIBRARY STREET COLLECTIVE, is pleased to announce the much-anticipated Los Angeles exhibition by REVOK. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, unveiling an entirely new body of work featuring over a dozen hand-painted wood assemblages of enthralling geometric forms in vibrant oil enamel and synthetic polymer. The work is a culmination of REVOK’S new ideas that spawned since moving back to Los Angeles in 2013 after a two-year creative hiatus in Detroit.

This piece is a solid mix of sign paintings, design and good ‘ol fashion graffiti. Revok always on point and extra clean.

For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context. We have been lucky in our 20th year to celebrate special events in NYC and San Francisco, but we are even luckier to get a chance to celebrate with our July 2014 cover artist, Shepard Fairey, as he curates a major public art and exhibition, "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago during Lollapolooza, July 31—August 4, 2014.

Rime and Revok pulled out all their colors and weapons on this NS flat car. This thing got laced up without a doubt.

Revok did this box truck justice, adding a caped figure to hover over his letters.

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.

We have been covering REVOK in Juxtapoz for years, both in print and online, and have loved seeing the evolution of his work as the longtime Los Angeles-based artist moved to Detroit a few years back. The result has been a fascinating and growing collection of 3D collages of found materials. Revok's new book, "Made In Detroit," will be celebrating at MOCA on January 4, 2014 with a book signing event.

Everything Revok paints and has painted in the past is on point, so there’s no reason for us to explain why it’s good. You already know.

The Seventh Letter’s flagship store and gallery opened last week, we stopped by the grand opening and it was quite the event. As you may know from our past with the Seventh Letter crew and brand, we had an entire issue dedicated to them in July 2007, and have extensively covered exhibitions at Known Gallery in LA over the years. That said, this store is long, long overdue, and we are so happy they got the flagship up and running!!! Hope you enjoy the photos.
