From the Twenty-Six New Works by RISK press release:
In a career spanning twenty-six years, graffiti artist RISK has impacted the evolution of street writing as an artform in Los Angeles and worldwide. His signature tag ran on the subway cars of New York, becoming the first writer outside of New York to be recognized by the same legendary graffiti artists who inspired him early on. In L.A. RISK continued to push the limits further than they had ever gone before by bombing - what would later be referred to in the graffiti world as a 'heaven' - on freeway overpasses and other highly visible spots throughout the city gaining major notoriety for his unique style. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets and into the gallery with the launch of the Third Rail series of art shows; he later parlayed the Third Rail brand into the first authentic line of graffiti-inspired clothing.
