Following their collaborative show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, “Uphill Both Ways,” Pose and Revok joined forces in New York City to create a vibrant mural pulsing with cultural references and graffiti history. Located at the Houston Wall on Bowery and Houston, the mural has an almost quilt-like composition. An amalgamation of letters and characters explodes with intense hues of magenta, teal and lime green, melding together art historical allusions (like Pose’s Lichtenstein-esque figures), different letter styles, abstract elements and cartoon characters. Both artists paid tribute to New York City’s graffiti legacy: The names of fallen graffiti originators like Dondi, Ayer, Vizie, Cheech Wizard, Omenz, Sace, Case 2, Semz, Tie One and Rammellzee are woven into the mural’s busy landscape. Take a look at some photos of the mural by Jaime Rojo, images via Brooklyn Street Art.
