Crowdfunding Campaign Launched to Support Accused Graffiti Artist and Advocate


On July 1, 2024, a crowdfunding campaign was initiated to provide legal assistance and support to a prominent tagger known as "Revolt," who is currently facing charges related to the possession of a significant quantity of spray paint. Revolt is a renowned graffiti artist who has gained both notoriety and recognition for their striking and thought-provoking street art.

The charges against Revolt stem from a raid conducted by the Portland Police Bureau in June 2024 on a storage unit that was allegedly being used to store a large cache of spray paint. The raid resulted in the seizure of approximately 200 cans of spray paint, along with other materials associated with graffiti activity.

Revolt was subsequently arrested and charged with multiple offenses, including criminal mischief, possession of graffiti tools, and possession of a controlled substance. However, Revolt maintains their innocence and asserts that the spray paint was intended for legitimate artistic purposes.

In response to Revolt's arrest and pending charges, a group of their supporters have launched a crowdfunding campaign on the platform GoFundMe. The campaign aims to raise funds to cover legal expenses, bail, and potential fines associated with the case.

According to the campaign's description, Revolt is an "accomplished artist and advocate for the homeless community." The description further states that Revolt has "dedicated their life to using their art to raise awareness about social issues and inspire change."

The campaign has garnered significant attention and support from both the local Portland community and the broader arts community. Within the first 24 hours of its launch, the campaign had raised over $10,000.

In addition to financial support, the crowdfunding campaign has also served as a platform for Revolt's supporters to express their solidarity and voice their concerns about the criminalization of graffiti art. Many have argued that the charges against Revolt are excessive and that they represent an attempt to suppress artistic expression.

As of this writing, Revolt remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court on July 10, 2024. The outcome of the case is still uncertain, but the crowdfunding campaign has provided a clear indication of the strong support and belief in Revolt's innocence among their community.

Background on Revolt and the Portland Graffiti Scene

Revolt has been a prominent figure in the Portland graffiti scene for over a decade. Their distinctive style and thought-provoking messages have gained widespread recognition, both within the city and beyond.

Revolt's art often incorporates themes of social justice, homelessness, and the struggle for equality. Their work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications, and has been commissioned by organizations such as the Portland Art Museum and the Oregon Contemporary.

Beyond their artistic pursuits, Revolt has also been an active advocate for the homeless community in Portland. They have worked with various organizations to provide food, clothing, and support to those in need.

The arrest and charges against Revolt have sent shockwaves through the Portland graffiti scene. Many artists have expressed concern that the incident is indicative of a broader crackdown on graffiti art in the city.

Portland has a long and vibrant history of graffiti culture, and many artists view it as an essential form of expression and a way to engage with the community. However, in recent years, the city has taken a more aggressive stance towards graffiti, with increased enforcement of anti-graffiti laws.

The crowdfunding campaign for Revolt has become a rallying point for the Portland graffiti community and a symbol of their resistance against what they perceive as unwarranted persecution.
