"Third Rail" by the celebrated graffiti pop artist Risk Rock is a striking embodiment of the vibrancy and subversive energy that define street art. Released on May 10, 2015, as a limited edition hand-pulled serigraph print, it encapsulates the artist's reputation for pushing visual boundaries. Each of the prints from this exclusive release is presented on premium 320gsm Coventry Rag Fine Art paper, with the dimensions of each sheet measuring 24 x 24 inches. This specific print, marked as a Printer's Proof (P.P.), stands apart from the main edition limited to 50, making it even more unique and sought after by collectors. Emphasized by a vivid seven-color palette, the serigraph method employed by Risk enhances the piece's textural depth and chromatic intensity, celebrating the graffiti art form's intrinsic link to urban culture. The artwork is not only signed by the artist but also numbered and dated along its lower edge, verifying its authenticity and connecting it directly to its creator's storied career. The image itself, a devilish, grinning face set against a backdrop of psychedelic colors and shapes, exudes the rebellious spirit inherent to the graffiti movement. This edition holds special significance as it was originally sold with Risk's monograph, "Old Habits Die Hard." The publication dives into Risk's influential role as one of the progenitors of the Los Angeles graffiti scene. His work and leadership helped catapult street art from its underground roots to a significant movement recognized worldwide. The monograph details Risk’s journey as an artist and his dedication to advancing not only his artistic expressions but also to contributing to the broader acceptance and appreciation of graffiti as a legitimate and powerful art form. Risk Rock's "Third Rail" stands as a potent representation of this transformative era in art, symbolizing the transition of graffiti from street corners to fine art galleries, and securing Risk’s legacy within the cultural tapestry of pop art, street art, and graffiti.
