Kelly Graval, the multi-talented fine artist, illustrator and graffitist known as RISK, has been synonymous with the Los Angeles art community for more than three decades. RISK has solidified his place in the history books as a world-renowned graffiti legend and has come a long way since he pioneered the painting of freeway overpasses, signs and billboards, dubbed “heavens.” Although RISK loves aerosol art, he sees it as merely just one genre in his life’s work. From his days as a student at the USC School of Fine Arts to Gallery and museum showings around the world. RISK has transformed from a street artist to a rising star in the contemporary art world.
