Jason Williams, better known as Revok, is a Californian graffiti artist turned abstract painter. His roots as a graffiti artist landed him more than a few run-ins with the law; it also landed him a solo show in Cologne, Germany in 2015, as well as three more group shows from 2015-2017.
METADATA 5 (CORRUPT FILE), 2015
Revok's abstract work is a culmination of parallel lines and geometric shapes. His artwork usually consists of bright, contrasting colors, disjointed lines that abruptly end or lead somewhere else. Revok's spectacularly titled METADATA 5 (CORRUPT FILE) is exactly that; a computer glitch, a screen gone haywire. Disjointed as it may appear, every aspect looks purposefully misaligned, abrasive, and disorganized.
Instrument Exercise #9, 2017
Instrument Exercise #9 is one in a series of painting which uses the jagged spray painted lines. As the paint gets closer to the foreground, it becomes muddled into brown covering the electric blue and gradient orange-red, and finally becomes black. The lines are weathered and imperfect, some previous layers show through, and everything was strategically placed.
