Refuse Resist Revolt brings together two prolific graffiti writers for an impactful showcase of new artwork from Jaber and Aware.
An underground culture born out of the need to question authority, graffiti has always been a way for the marginalized to stand out – to be seen and heard. These roots of questioning authority are a driving force in the messages Jaber and Aware have set out to share. The anti-authoritarian theme of Refuse Resist Revolt is a commentary on the current moral and political climate of our country expressed through art.
Works by The White Ninja, a.k.a. Jaber, and Aware from Indecline, will reflect the Executive Branch of the Government and how society perceives freedom in the United States. The collection of art will include raw unrestrained paintings depicting how law enforcement abuse their power, to sarcastic takes on Johnny Law, to communicating the view of freedom through the eyes of graffiti writers who have been questioning the system for decades.
Jaber, a hardworking full-time artist respected around the world, began putting his name up in the Bay Area in the early 90’s. Jaber, a.k.a. The White Ninja, originating from the west coast, has shown work all over the United States and Canada. Jaber has adapted his artwork throughout the years to amass a diverse range of styles, always staying consistent to the level of quality he puts out. He is always looking for new ways to spread his message
AWARE, an American artist often associated with the political street art group, Indecline, has produced work that can be seen throughout the world. A graffiti writer with a cause, Aware dedicates the majority of his time to display street murals containing social and/or political themes in order to bring awareness to the marginalized. Though he is trained in many mediums, Aware typically prefers aerosol paint.
Please join Jaber and Aware at Ewkuks for the Opening Reception of REFUSE RESIST REVOLT with refreshments, New Original Artwork, Collab Apparel, and Limited-Edition prints.
