Just a few days ago, REVOK, famed graffiti artist and one of the key members of the The 7th Letter crew, opened up his first ever solo show at Vicious Gallery in Hamburg, Germany. Titled Triumph and Tragedy, this exhibit builds on the recent turn in REVOK’s repertoire in which he utilizes found objects gathered from the deserted and forgotten landscapes of Detroit – first seen in a group show at L.A.’s Known Gallery (covered). This technique leads to great texture on every one of his pieces. Whether it’s layers upon layers of long wooden pieces forming new shapes or the collage aspects of the work, the idea that something new can rise out of the ashes of the broken is one of the themes emphasized.
