Over the weekend, LA’s Fabien Castanier gallery opened Metallic Tissue, an exhibition featuring new work by Kelly “RISK” Graval. Curated by graffiti historian, Roger Gastman, Metallic Tissue spans the artist’s 30-year career – one which has seen his unparalleled impact on the Los Angeles graffiti scene and beyond – solidifying his place in the history books as a legend. For this exhibition, RISK explores versatility with various mediums and styles. Working with color fields rather than lettering or imagery he continues to push the boundaries of traditional graffiti, deconstructing letters into abstract forms and proving he’s just as comfortable in a gallery setting as he is on the streets. Metallic Tissue runs through December 15, 2013.
