Rest in Peace: Nekst, a Video Tribute By His Brother, Vizie
Losing a family member is one of the most painful experiences that anyone could possibly live through. Losing a best friend at the same time is downright tragic. When Houston-raised world-famous graffiti artist Nekst passed away this past December, those who knew him and his extensive body of work felt extreme heartbreak and sadness when hit with the news. Yet none of us can begin to imagine the intense sorrow that his family has endured, especially that of his brother.
Vizie paints masterfully vibrant pieces and comically illustrated characters that capture the imagination of graffiti admirers across the globe. He created his own style, altogether different from his brother's but never too distant. Both brothers are regarded as masters of their craft, kings of the graffiti art world.
Earlier this week, California-based creative lifestyle clothing company LRG released the following video tribute to Nekst, which showcases Vizie paying his respects through the medium he knows best: paint.
Rest in Peace, Nekst.
