Pose and Revok’s Mural at the Houston Wall in New York

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. See more after the jump.
