The show will also feature the newest incarnation of Hoxxoh’s “Rainbird” series of unique paint-spraying, pressurized sprinklers.
Douglas Hoekzema, aka Hoxxoh attempts to show us a different way of viewing time through a means of exploring its natural fabric. His work creates a new foundation and approach to evaluating and appreciating time. The oscillation of the pendulum paints time through gravity’s natural pull. Expressing how we can be pulled in one direction, when we are really meant to be going in another. How resistance creates a struggle and a false sense of control. Where if we follow the natural flow of times predetermined, yet unseen path, an experience of beauty and pure form will take shape.
In 1983 RISK was the first to write on highway overpasses and train cars, bringing graffiti to LA and proliferating the art form. Pioneering crews such as WCA (West Coast Artists) and MSK (Mad Society Kings), RISK has since painted for Michael Jackson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bad Religion, Blink 182, and Playboy, among many others. With a extensive history creating art, RISK defines what it means to be a fluid and dynamic artist.
