Revok is FREEThursday, June 9, 2011
The Los Angeles graffiti artist, Revok was recently released from prison.
After 44 days and 24,000$ of debt I am finally out of jail… Thank you soo very much to all of you people who showed your support with drawings, paintings, etc. It means a great deal to me that there are people out there that actually give a shit.
I fucked up and didn’t pay a fine or complete my court ordered community service in time… So i was arrested by the lowest of lifeforms within the L.A. Sheriffs dept.(The graffiti task force) while waiting to board a flight to Dublin at LAX. The sheriffs ended up charging me with 2 additional charges for painting 2 separate murals with the property owners consent… Apparently if you paint a mural in Los Angeles with the consent/support of the property owner it is still a crime if the said mural is not done in conjunction with the Dept. of building & safety(Never mind that the Dept. of B.S. has NEVER issued a permit for a mural) -It seems i am facing severe criminal prosecution and a major civil lawsuit if i ever paint a mural in Los Angeles again… Regardless if i am commissioned or endorsed by the building owner since i will never be issued a permit by The Dept. of BS.
Anyways thank all of you again for your support through my latest(HOPEFULLY LAST) battle with the law… This ship would have sunk deep into the depths were it not for the support of my family & friends to whom i owe a tremendous debt… I LOVE YOU GUYS, THANK YOU!
-And THANK YOU a 1,000 X’s to CASEY EKLIPS, AARON LEVANT, PAT TENORE, THE 7TH LETTER, KNOWN GALLERY, ASKEW, SAMANTH RONSON, TALLYWOOD, RETNA, POSE, 1XRUN… And last but definitely NOT least my lawyer Ton Nguyen.
