#RISKROCK #GRAFFITI IN #SANFRANCISCO

On a very rare hot day in San Francisco legendary West Coast graffiti artist Risk (AWR/MSK/WCA) came correct with a few Montana Ultra-wide spray cans and a 6-pack of Bud Lights as he took over a parking lot wall with a massive #RISKROCK chrome straight letter. With social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter embracing the use of hashtags and self promotion he figured it was only appropriate to poke fun at our cultural obsession.

When asked why he chose to put a hastag in front of his piece Risk said “It seems like a lot of people these days only paint to post [online] so I thought I’d just paint what everybody’s thinking.” Risk worked backwards as cars pulled out throughout the day, making way for the artist to do his thing. Scroll down to check out the finished flicks.

Also, check out Mass Appeal’s previous post on Risk in San Francisco and his involvement with Red Bull’s “Ride N Style” event.
