JASON REVOK, 'ORDINARY THINGS'
JASON REVOK, ORDINARY THINGS
October 29, 2012 (Arrested Motion)
This Friday, Jason REVOK will be premiering a new show in Detroit at the Library Street Collective. With Ordinary Things, the graffiti titan makes his solo premiere in his adoptive city since moving from his home base of Los Angeles. This fresh body of work consists of REVOK taking his intricate paint’em & break’em style to another level. Each piece utilizes numerous fragments of “locally sourced” urban material from the Motor City and challenges his already impressive diamond motifs (seen City of Fire & Known Gallery earlier this year) with increasingly complicated geometric designs.
REVOK will be attendance for the Friday opening reception from 8-10 pm, so if you’re in the East Michigan area, make sure you check this out. Here’s an exclusive look at the show as he was working to set it up this past week.
Jason REVOK (born Jason Williams in 1977) is an American contemporary artist noted for his complex assemblage works. Respected for decades of influential and pioneering work as a graffiti writer, REVOK’s studio work explores deeply shared themes involving place and human experience using the very materials that make up the environment around him. REVOK has exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles as well as the Pasadena Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been exhibited internationally in the United States, Europe and the Middle East and is in a number of important private collections worldwide.
