London: Letters from America

Letters from America

American artists Risk, Saber, Ron English and TrustoCorp  invaded London on the 4th of July  for a show titled “Letters from America” curated by Corey Helford Gallery at Black Rat projects.

Ron English surreal paintings and TrustoCorp  witty signs were a treat for the eyes.  It was also a  great opportunity to see paintings and sculptures by Risk and Saber’s customized flags highlighting issues with the National Healthcare System.

Risk: Edible Bus Stop installation at Hampton Court

Risk - Hampton Court

The Edible Bus Stop is a guerilla garden project adjacent to a bus stop aiming to transform neglected sites across London’s bus network into valuable community growing spaces and celebrated by local residents and users of the bus route.

For the Royal Hampton Court Flower show, L.A. graffiti artist Risk got involved in the project and created an installation called “Riot of Colour”, inspired by last year’s London riots and a colourful view of how nature over time, will transform a damaged urban landscape..
