Watch RISK & DEFER Reinterpret Estevan Oriol's Iconic 'L.A. Fingers' Photo

As part of a limited release of six original artworks.

Legendary graffiti artists RISK and DEFER have teamed on a collaborative series of artworks that centers upon Estevan Oriol’s most-iconic L.A. Fingers photograph. For the partnership, the LA-born cohorts purvey a total of six original works comprised of 37” x 49” silkscreens on woven paper with deckled edges. RISK and DEFER add their own spray-painted signature motifs on the ubiquitous visual that will soon be released exclusively through ArtLife Gallery’s website.

“Beyond the love and admiration I have for Estevan’s photography, he’s been like a brother to me for over 30 years and counting,” said Kelly “RISK” Graval. “Estevan’s photography captures the essence of LA’s diversity – from those in the limelight and those on the fringes and everything in between,” added DEFER. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of RISK and DEFER by watching the exclusive clip above.

In other art happenings, four men have been accused of stealing a 220-pound gold coin from the Bode Museum in Berlin.
