Vr0n is an embroidery artist based in Philadelphia who creates incredible embroidery work based on graffiti pieces that have been painted in the streets. Though we can find little information about the artist, her Instagram page has a solid amount of work paying tribute to the likes of Nekst, Pear and JA.
Infamous graffiti artists REVOK and POSE of the MSK Crew recently created work for the MOCA in Detroit, which pays homage to their late friend NEKST. In this video the duo talk about the process, the impact of their friend’s legacy and how important Detroit has been in their lives.
A brilliant tribute video for graffiti king and legend, NEKST MSK D30. Some unseen footage of the king at work, narrated by infamous POSE MSK and new footage of some of the homies painting two massive tribute pieces on the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art.
[LRG] Artist Driven members VIZIE, POSE, DABS and MYLA, STEEL, OMENS, Rich Colman, and KC ONE traveled to Brooklyn, NY to pay tribute and celebrate the life of NEKST with a huge collaborative wall in Williamsburg alongside family and friends. The three-block-long wall served as the perfect canvas for the Artist Driven team and over a dozen other heavy hitters from the graffiti community including, FASR, EL KAMINO, CEZE, TRAVE, RIME, REVOK, SCREW, DMOTE, OWNS, NAVY8, HARSH, ACNE, STONER, and WANE who all threw down their own individual dedications to NEKST.
Presented by LRG Artist Driven and shot by KC Ortiz in Houston, the video begins with a montage of shots of different tributes painted in memory of NEKST as well as some of his work that’s still running strong. However, the main focus of the video is VIZIE painting a memorial burner for his brother in his incredible style. Finally, the video ends with quick cuts of very rare footage of NEKST getting busy. Peep the science after the jump. May truly Nekst rest in peace.
