It appears that not everyone in LA shares the same love of graf as the visitors to the Art in the Streets exhibition at MOCA.
REVOK, widely seen by many as one of the worlds greatest graffiti artists, was arrested on Thursday morning as he tried to board a plane to Ireland. Deputies from the sheriff's Metro Transit Services Bureau, took the artist into custody whereby bail of $320,000 was put in place.
The MTSB have a list of their "most wanted taggers" which REVOK was not included in. The whole incident is made all the more ridiculous when you realise the enormity of the artist's bail when compared to actual criminals.
Many people see this as more than just a coincidence that this has happened whilst Art in the Streets is fully in swing, I'd probably go along with that. REVOK has now been sentenced to 180 days in jail.
The artist's clothing line 7th Letter have just released these three collaborative Tees with SABER, RISK and REVOK himself exclusively for the exhibition at MOCA.
Also available is the choice "Free REVOK" Tee which is helping to raise funds for legel fees, all are available now here.
