Graffiti: Nekst Tribute By Askew1

By - Friday, August 30th, 2013

{image-1} While in Detroit for his exhibition opening at the Inner State Gallery, graffiti artist Askew painted a large-scale mural in memory of his friend and Mad Society Kings crew member Nekst. The photo-realistic tribute incorporates a portrait of the prolific writer as well as his tag in a striking red black and chrome scheme. Writing on his blog, Askew said that the mural was “almost entirely painted in chrome, black and red Rustoleum bucket paint that Nekst left behind in Revok’s studio. The first time I really got to know Nekst he had me loading so many buckets of this paint into the trunk of a rental car we drove from Chicago to Detroit. I don’t now if these were some of the same buckets left over from then or not. Revok had the idea to do it this way and I think it was an incredible idea.”
