A group of friends gathered in Detroit to reproduce NEKST'S John Hancock on the front of the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art.

Artist Driven members VIZIE, POSE, DABS and MYLA, STEEL, OMENS, Rich Coleman, and KC ONE traveled to Brooklyn, NY to pay tribute and celebrate the life of NEKST with a huge collaborative wall in Williamsburg alongside family and friends. The three-block-long wall served as the perfect canvas for the Artist Driven team and over a dozen other heavy hitters from the graffiti community including, FASR, EL KAMINO, CEAZE, TRAV, RIME, REVOK, SCREW, DMOTE, OWNS, NAVY8, HARSH, ACNE, STONER, and WANE who all threw down their own individual dedications to NEKST.
In fitting tribute to his recently passed brother, VIZIE heads to their hometown of Houston to honor the memory of NEKST as part of our ongoing Artist Driven series.
