Longevity is rare in graffiti. Most graffiti artists go strong for a few years but than they usually stop. Risk has been doing graffiti for 20 plus years and in my opinion is one of the most talented.
I first saw Risk's work on the pages of Can Control magazine. I later saw some in Santa Monica on the Cinergi Pictures building which is still up since 1991. His work was also featured at a graffiti show that was put on by Frame. As I traveled through LA in the 90s I saw more of his work on Melrose and other spots in the city.
I recently had the pleasure of seeing some of his work at 33Third in Los Angeles.

Risk on the cover of Can Control issue #2. This was my favorite cover. I loved the step by step visual to a finished piece.
