This Saturday, July 28, two legendary graffiti artists, REVOK and SABER, will open new body of works at Known Gallery in Los Angeles (Gilgamesh and Beautification, respectively). In our May 2012 Public Art Issue, we sat down with the two artists to have them discuss the current state of graffiti, their personal history with authorities, and how cities can best capitalize on the positive aspects of graffiti and street art. Here, we have reprinted the article in full.

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.

The Seventh Letter has just released a lengthy first portion of a video series documenting the Detroit Beautification Project. The video focuses on the intent of the project told by Revok and Pose, with some words from Askew, a city council meeting discussing Sever’s mural, and local residents weigh in on their thoughts about the art. As you can see from the video, Detroit is becoming a destination for artists from around the world with “the common goal to bring vibrancy to one of America’s greatest cities.”

In association with the Detroit Beautification Project, Revok and Rime collaborated in painting this large mural packed with a variety of visual awesomeness. Aside from the quality pieces from these two, Rime painted an angry yet comical animal eating one of his signature girl characters who are running rampant all over the wall.

The Seventh Letter and The Hundreds have just released this video featuring graffiti artist, Revok. The video highlights Revok telling a story of his father, as well a reminding those who write on things to not take themselves to seriously. The artist also paints a dick and a “Fuck The Police”, there is a head banging guitarist, and a butler serving a spray can! Good watch.

Sleezy McCheezy was on the scene and got the following pics.
