L.A Based graffiti artist REVOK AKA Jason Williams has been tagging under his current name since 1991, when he was 14. His ‘Los Awesome’ series, created on billboards around the city, was the result of a collaboration called ‘The Movement’ with graffiti writers Rime and Augor. The Movement’s aim was to celebrate LA by creating graffiti that eschewed aggressive, territorial, messages typically associated with tags in the city. He was famously arrested during a guest appearance at LA’s ‘33rd Graffiti Art Store’ exhibition in 2008. Police later raided his home, apparently finding ‘several hundred paint cans, a police badge, fire extinguisher and stolen detour sign’.
