December 14, 2012

MOCAtv’s new art channel has recently been documenting the work of many contemporary artists such as Retna and, JR, and now they center the focus on Los Angeles-based graffiti artist, Risk.  With over 30 years of painting behind him, Risk feels compelled to brighten up areas that have been overlooked and uplift the spirits of others with his murals. He goes on to say “I want dispel the myth that all graffiti is negative.” The large wall documented in this video was painted in one of the more poverty, drug-stricken neighborhoods of Los Angeles’s called Skid Row. Watch as Risk speaks on this particular mural and his art.
