The Reverend Butter's "Inspiration"

While on my way up to the Aerosol Warfare (A.W.) gallery, I reminisced on how it has been 11yrs since I was first introduced to Gonzo, NME, and a gang of others. I'm honored that I've had the chance to work and travel with A.W. in the past and can truly separate the fact that I like them as artist/friends. Their latest endeavors include hosting art shows and selling merchandise, like exclusive spray paint, aerosol tools, t-shirts, magazines, purses, toys and more from their A.W. gallery located at 1004 Palmer, on the East Side of downtown. These guys are all over the place and are constantly shining light on what I guess you would call the "Houston art scene". With over a decade of history in the City of Houston, these artist have played a big role and influence in setting the standards for Houston underground graffiti art. Today graffiti can be stereotyped as ugly, dirty, filth, but A.W. has changed the way people view this art. They recently made the front cover of Houston local magazine 002, so that just goes to prove that there is no limit to who they can appeal to.

Well tonight, all eyes were on the Reverend Butter. The Rev.Butter...A cool, Latin, ninja, chainsaw, ice sculpting, performing cowboy. Butter is way ahead of the time with his exquisite sculptures. A man of perfection, his sculptures are so detailed you can't believe it's ice. To actually look at his sculptures is one thing, but to watch him at work from beginning to end is a different presentation. His weapon of choice is the chainsaw, the gas powered or electric. Watching him carve out sculptures from large 300lb. blocks of ice is amazing and innovative. The man is in high demand for his work, from night clubs, political conventions to wedding receptions, there's no holds barred for the Reverned. You tell him what you want, most likely he can do it!

Mucho props to the Rev. Butter, NME, and Gonzo for another successful event. Stay updated with the 411 on Butter The Reverend Butter and A.W. info Aerosol Warfare
