Anyone who follows graffiti art in Los Angeles knows REVOK and we got a sad news.
Revok was arrested for vandalism Thursday morning at LAX airport by sheriff’s deputies.
Revok was heading to Ireland.
He was already arrested back in 2009 and placed on probation for vandalism, in 2010 he was arrested near a graffiti store with several hundred cans of spray paint and a replica of LAPD badge.
He is now being held in LA country jail with an insane bail set at $320,000.
This is the second incident in a few days after the Invader’s story and it’s  sad to see the persecution of artist’s in LA.
