Jason Williams aka REVOK is an American artist who explores deep shared themes involving place and human experience using the very materials that make up the urban environment we are surrounded with and live in.

On the streets REVOK creates wonderful old school style graffiti writing, but while rooted in the culture of street art and graffiti writing his style is constantly evolving, paying homage to what has gone before but also pushing the boundaries with new wild styles and expressive graffiti writing. The unique style of REVOK has also enabled him to move into studio based work and cross over into the world of fine art and galleries, with a body of work that draws on influences from his graffiti writing but also explores new territories with assemblages and more restrained methods of painting.
