NEKST D30 MSK DTS was a legendary graffiti writer and an amazing human being. He is internationally respected for his vast number of giant, stylish, bold pieces, and will go down in history as one of the greatest graffiti writers of all time. Originally from Houston, TX, you can find his work in every American city. He spent time in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York establishing himself as the most prolific writer in each of those cities.
NEKST was unstoppable, indestructible, fearless, giant, relevant, motivated, driven and extremely busy. He did not make excuses, he worked. NEKST didn’t do anything moderately. NEKST painted the strongest graffiti, wore the finest cashmere, drank the most delicious champagne, and had the most amazing friends. NEKST didn’t pass up anything great in life, and left an unmistakable impact on the world when he left.
Infinitely respected, loved, and missed, the legacy of NEKST will never die.
I just finished my latest mural “Knowledge Comes with a Price.” I painted this piece for the new breed of heroes who have put their lives in danger to inform We The People of the horrible atrocities our government has committed. Today’s problems require new conversations as to how we conduct our personal privacy and how we define freedom. “Sacrifice is the measure of credibility & information comes with a price. Knowledge is power & there is no higher knowledge than truth – the truth shall set you free.” -Mear One
