Just before Christmas the international graffiti realm suffered a huge loss with the passing of Nekst. He was a dedicated graffiti artist, member of MSK (Mad Society Kings), and he dominated the scene in which ever city he showed up in.
Nekst had been painting graffiti with unmatched levels of dedication for what was nearing twenty years – leaving his home in Houston, Texas to spread his name US-wide and internationally. He kept the spirit of bombing alive in the almost forgotten rebellious, balls to the wall, illegal fashion that the culture was founded on and he will be truly missed.
“My work has always been about scale and visibility” he once stated in an interview. For each of his pieces, his choice of structure, colors, size and location was always meticulously planned, legible and in high traffic areas.
Since his passing there have been many tributes to him and I have been fortunate enough to view ones from the likes of Aroe (MSK) and Kemef Inc.
Artist: Aroe (MSK)
