Renowned Los Angeles artist RISK is in Winnipeg to undertake the creation of two murals.
Graffiti Art Programming Inc. is hosting RISK, who began his project on Thursday in the city’s Point Douglas neighbourhood.
The murals will be located at the Studio 5 youth centre, at 5 Beaconsfield Street, and at Graffiti Gallery at 109 Higgins Avenue. The murals are part of RISK’s “Beautifully Destroyed” series, with the intent of transforming the mundane cityscape through layers of uplifting colour.
The murals are expected to be complete by August 16.
RISK will open his solo exhibit, “Keep On Keepin’ On,” on Thursday, August 15 at 7 p.m. at the Graffiti Gallery. The evening will also feature live music by Krazy Kingz. Admission is free with donation of a non-perishable food item.
