Sever uses the visual language of graffiti, with its bold lines and vivid colors, to capture the intensity and energy of such moments, transforming them into a statement that resonates on both aesthetic and sociopolitical levels.

The artwork's raw and expressive style is characteristic of Sever's oeuvre, often characterized by a blend of satire and critique leveled at modern society's issues. Through works such as "Hands Up," Sever contributes to the broader narrative of street pop art and graffiti artwork, continually serving as a barometer for cultural sentiment and a platform for expression within the urban landscape.
