Revok’s Art in the Streets web curation

source: Revok1

The beef that people have toward art blogging is often not adding value to the actual works produced by the artist. However, the reason that Ennui covers Art in the Streets, at least through Internet curation and telling you about who to hit for what kind of perspective,is to bring the jumbled, often enclaved curatorial style of art’s in-crowd, like Art in the Streets curators Jeffrey Deitsch, Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose in sharper focus, especially for readers wanting to see the significance, not just exhibit shots or production videos.

And don’t get us wrong, no disrespect to Deitsch and company for their awesome, awesome contribution to this genre and setting, but art that was borne from bystander fascination and cover of night deserves to be covered by every outlet, in whatever way possible. In this case, check out LA graff legend and blu collar self-starter Revok1‘s own curation of Art in the Streets coverage.

Wow, that last one is LA at its finest. Revok‘s selections of photos in that post definitely lean more toward LA’s graff inspirations, as those works are closest to the heart of the writer’s career and style. From Revok1:

Here are a few photos from the incredibly overwhelming experience that is ART IN THE STREETS…

Some photos stolen from OS GEMEOS and ARRESTED MOTION

More photos soon when I get the chance to sit down at a computer and upload my own…

As we sift through the thousands of photos swamping the Internet right now, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the unique perspectives that the artists and documenters are presenting at this show.

Revok continues to not only kill but also document the slayings. This time, a photo series in Detroit with these short words:

-I have never been anywhere in the world that feels so forgotten and neglected…

This series definitely shows that almost somber and definitely industrial mood of the city. While we can’t really attest to the conditions personally, these photos speak volumes of an area hit so hard by recession.

These photo essays are always awesome, and for a seasoned artist like Revok keeping not only a narrative alive in his work but also pushing forward and documenting is sweet. Check out the blog from this LA legend as he documents his exploits across the globe.
