Legendary Graffiti Artist RISK delivers Limited Edition Hand Painted 12” Vinyl. His first pick for collaboration in what will become a new series of limited edition art pieces is with his Los Angeles cohorts Dilated Peoples. RISK has created 50 limited edition hand painted copies of the 12” vinyl version of “Directors of Photography”, which is the most recent release of Hip Hop trailblazers Dilated Peoples released on Rhymesayers Entertainment.
Each of the 50 records are a totally unique visual experience that features a hand painted design that was created by RISK. Each piece of vinyl will come framed with a certificate of authenticity and be signed and numbered by both RISK and the members of Dilated Peoples. The limited edition vinyl is available online at http://www.shopbenchmark.com/buckshot/catalog/product/view/id/22318/s/risk-sample-item-017/.
“Dilated Peoples was always special to me because I grew up with those guys. We didn’t hang out all the time but we were running around in the same scene. They are family,” said RISK. “Years later, we often crossed paths and I was always intrigued and happy to see my peers progressing and pushing further. It’s like that’s what we did, and it’s always inspiring to watch them push the boundaries!”
“Risk is one of the best ever as far as style and consistency and he is razor sharp with his technique. We all came up in the same L.A. Graffiti circles, and it has been a trip to see how we’ve all grown and continue to flourish,” said Rakaa from Dilated Peoples. “It is an honor to collaborate with him on these limited edition pieces. These are not prints — these are original works of art born in pure inspiration.”
