Frequent collaborators and friends...
Pose and Revok had previously worked together to paint Goldman Properties iconic Houston Bowery wall in New York. Although their individual styles differ, conceptually their work is connected as the artists both draw inspiration directly from their environments.
Pose, currently based in Chicago, has been a graffiti writer for over two decades, starting in 1992. His aesthetic often features sampling – the combining of a variety of disparate elements and re-contextualizing them. Pose has said previously that his sampling is more emotional and atmospheric: “Everything from everywhere… just taking from things around you and using them to express yourself, to create a dialogue, to create a narrative.” Revok, originally from Los Angeles started tagging in 1991 when he was 14 years old. His work most often features elements of psychedelic and euphoric states conveyed in meticulous 3-D collages utilizing found materials.
Pose and Revok were invited to once again work together on a mural this time for Wynwood Walls’ 2014 program, the Art of Collaboration.
