Description

Artist: RISK


Forbes Magazine has called RISK the Andy Warhol of our time. He has created special art with 100% of monies raised benefitting Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa.


Piece: Shalom- Large


Live auction: Thursday, April 11th at a Private Residence in Beverly Hills (Tickets - auction.healthcareforisrael.org).


Acrylic, Aerosol, Kandy Car Paint, Crushed Abalone & Surfboard Resin on "Metallic Tissue" Collage of Recycled Spray Cans and License Plates with Neon


76 x 74.25 in (193.04 x 188.6 cm)


Risk's symbols of peace emerge through the creation of metallic tissue pieces illuminated by a neon rainbow. Designed to represent all of mankind, these artworks convey a profound message - that with colors, we craft images, and with images, we have the power to create anything. Yet, juxtaposed against this creative potential is a poignant question: why, despite our ability to craft anything, do we struggle to create humanity? The vibrant visual language becomes a contemolative reflection on the complexities of our shared existence and the challenges of fostering true humanity.
