On my many trips down to Atlanta, there is one recurring event that transpires with each visit: nail biting, stress provoking, near gridlock traffic anywhere and everywhere at rush hour. It seems unavoidable and is something I have come to anticipate. Thankfully, along with gasp-inducing car exhaust and brake dust clouding the windshield while waiting for the car in front to inch a few feet forward, I expect to spot Sever’s crispy bold lettering somewhere, on the ledge of a bridge, the back of a billboard, or some random wall where it has claimed the landscape ten years strong.

When it comes to memorable walls, Sever is not lacking. With some of the wittiest concepts the spray game has to offer, walls such as this one commenting on Native American genocide are stand out. Not to mention the obvious, but he always paints extra clean.

Sever from MSK is one of Atlanta’s most talented artists who frequently applies clever and intriguing concepts that in the past have been controversial (In a good way).

Sever has cleverly depicted a fictionalized scene where the iconic graffiti writer from the Bronx, Stay High 149 (in the yellow sweater) and his crew examine the work of the L.A. innovator “Chaz”, the Godfather of Chicano graffiti. As Sever says of this piece, “Homage is offered to these legendary writers, to the early era of graffiti’s spectacular rise, and to the processes they developed and were allied with.

One of the cleanest and most precise artists painting the U.S. streets has to be Atlanta’s own Sever. Over the last few years, the artists has branched outside of lettering, gracing the ATL and beyond with a number of site-specific murals (You remember his controversial “Death of Street Art” mural in Detroit). The artists recently updated his site with some work created in Seoul, Korea and an excellent piece painted on the exterior of the Atlanta Prison Farm.
