SABER:
REVOK:



For over 15 years SABER has used the urban landscape as a monumental canvas influencing local street art styles the world over. In 1997, SABER painted the world’s largest street art piece on the cement banks of the Los Angeles River. Measuring 250’ x 55’ and using 125 gallons of latex roller paint, this massive expression of raw street power is considered one of the most important pieces in street art history. Prolific and diverse, SABER’s work extends beyond his street art by catching the attention of the fine art world with his hyper real oil paintings of cityscapes. SABER is also noted for his ability to translate his work into three-dimensional sculptures collected by art aficionados and those that are part of the urban culture scene. SABER’s work has contributed to the advancement of contemporary street art as a legitimate art form extending its reach far beyond its primary roots.

The easiest way to get noticed in the graffiti world is to paint high-profile, hard-to-reach spots. But the attention doesn’t always mean respect: simply climbing a building and painting it means next to nothing if it’s not done well. Los Angeles-based graffiti artist REVOK has been painting mind-blowing, seemingly inaccessible spots, with grace and style, around the country for 15-plus years now. Subsequently, tales of his exploits have reached folklore status within the graffiti world. REVOK’s distinctive style has influenced countless artists, who have done their best to emulate his handiwork, forcing him to get more creative and broaden his stylistic repertoire. He has reinvented the alphabet several times over, giving his letters life and so much movement that they seem to jump off the wall. This past summer, REVOK has spread his name throughout Europe, appearing at numerous festivals to paint for fans and onlookers. Now European writers can join their American counterparts in admiration of REVOK’s unparalleled talents. REVOK’s creative skills are also becoming recognized and demanded for in the advertising and marketing world.
