Sunset Strip Music Festival Partners With RISK, Ethos Gallery For Limited Edition Prints
Prints Celebrate The Sunset Strip’s Music And Art Influence
The Sunset Strip is known for its long history of influencing music and the arts. This year, in celebration of this history, the Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) has partnered with Ethos Gallery and graffiti artist RISK to release special limited edition SSMF poster prints.
“Sunset Strip is California to me. I have so many good memories there. From sneaking into shows when I was in high school, to business meetings as a young adult, to having been celebrated as an accomplished artist for painting a guitar for my heroes, The Doors, last year. Being the first of many great artists to create an annual limited edition poster for the Sunset Strip Music Festival is truly an honor! The Strip continues to be a chronological calendar of highlights in my life,” stated RISK.
"Ethos Gallery is proud to spearhead the first SSMF limited edition print with world renowned graffiti artist Risk. Believing in the power of art to commemorate the important moments in our lives was our inspiration for this project. We hope this small piece of the festival will serve as a reminder to all who attended of the magic they experienced in 2013," noted Lisa Falcone, co-founder of Ethos Gallery with Eddie Donaldson.
The 18”x24” prints are numbered and signed by RISK. They will be available online beginning August 1 at www.buckshotprints.com for $100 per print. Only 200 prints are available.
“It is exciting to work with RISK and Ethos Gallery and celebrate the Sunset Strip Music Festival through art. From photography and concert posters to street art, art and music have coexisted on the boulevard for decades. The special prints are a great way to celebrate these two art forms and the music festival,” noted SSMF co-producer and The Roxy owner Nic Adler.
Ethos Gallery is also participating in the August 3 SSMF street festival by curating a live art exhibit. Street artist Gregory Siff will be among the artists participating in painting one of the 10-foot-tall Gibson GuitarTown art guitars, which will be auctioned for charity.
The all-day street festival will feature performances by Linkin Park, Wale, Awolnation, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Logic, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, Asher Roth, Finch, Street Drum Corps and more. Proceeds from the festival will benefit Music For Relief, the nonprofit organization Linkin Park founded to support disaster relief, provide aid to survivors of natural disasters and support the prevention of such disasters via environmental programs.

In a career spanning 27 years, RISK has impacted the evolution of graffiti as an art form in Los Angeles and worldwide. RISK gained major notoriety for his unique style and pushed the limits of graffiti further than any writer in L.A. had before: He was one of the first writers in Southern California to paint freight trains, and he pioneered writing on “heavens,” or freeway overpasses. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets and into the gallery with the launch of the Third Rail series of art shows, and later parlayed the name into the first authentic line of graffiti-inspired clothing.
