Risk x Retna x Heal the Bay Charity ProjectLos Angeles graffiti goliaths, Risk and Retna of Mad Society Kings infamy, have teamed up with Heal
Los Angeles graffiti goliaths, Risk and Retna of Mad Society Kings infamy, have teamed up with Heal the Bay, a charity working to keep the Santa Monica bay clean and free from pollution. Their contribution features an awe-inspiring installation two months in the making that feature wooden fixtures with ocean-themed hues, accompanied by Retna’s now infamous lettering. The not-for-profit project was facilitated by Adam Corlin, a fourth-generation Santa Monica resident who snatched up the million dollar property and knew he had the perfect canvas for artists of Risk and Retna’s caliber. The result: a 40 x 100 foot painted abode. For those of you wanting to check it out, roll through 825 Berkley St., Santa Monica, CA. Rumor is, Corlin is facing a $5,000 a day fine for letting known “vandals” participate in the process. In Detroit they let dilapidated houses burn and no one cares. In Los Angeles they add a priceless piece of work to an abandoned house and everybody cares. Don’t go West, young men.
