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.

After a week of painting in the night to avoid the grueling New York sun and heat, Revok and Pose have completed the large famed Bowery wall with assistance from Trav, Vizie, Omens, and Rime. Bursting with vibrant color, the collage-styled piece contains a number of words, characters, and designs, creating an onslaught of visual imagery. Many writers’ names who have passed can be found on the wall including Donde, Nekst, Sace, Rammellzee, Iz the Wiz, Ayer, and even a Skeme quote from the influential movie, Style Wars. To see it in person, head down to Bowery and Houston in Manhattan, New York. We doubt you will miss it.

Lepos’s newest vintage video game clip stars none other than graffiti stars, Revok and Ces, as they take on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The freelance animator spent a month creating the clip, but has no real plans of making an actual video game out of it, unless someone came along to invest some money in it. You know it looks like it would be highly entertaining to play!
