Following large-scale shows and mural projects in the States, tag team art duo and MSK brothers POSE & REVOK (aka, the decidedly less imposing Jordan Nickel & Jason Williams) took their show on the road to Dubai with an eponymous joint exhibition that opened at progressive Middle Eastern gallery The Mine—in conjunction with the Detroit-based Library Street Collective—on April 24th. With strong roots in graffiti & street art, both artists have taken inspiration from those formative visual cultures and refined them with modern Pop and abstract art sensibilities in recent years to forge elaborate and accomplished new bodies of mature work. This especially true in the case of REVOK, whose hardcore graffiti origins have given way to a beautiful geometric abstract modality of late, producing heavily patterned work that looked very much at home set amongst a landscape of Arab & Islamic artwork for this exhibition.
