Graffiti Artist RISK Promotes Aerosmith Show at Whiskey a Go Go (PHOTOS)

On Tuesday April 8, 2014, the rock and roll band Aerosmith performed an intimate set with Slash at the Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood to announce their 2014 tour dates. The artist RISK made a banner for the event outside of the venue. Here are a few images I took from the event as part of my N(art)ration series.

(This article is part of an ongoing photojournalism survey of art exhibition openings in SoCal titled EMS N(art)rative. Through my lens I document a photographic essay or visual "N(art)rative" that captures the happenings, personalities, collectors, gallerists, artists, and the art itself; all elements that form the richly varied and textured fabric of the SoCal art world. This reconnaissance offers a unique view for serious art world players to obtain news and information on the current pulse of what's in the now, yet capturing timeless indelible images for posterity and legacy. Here is EMS N(art)rative Nine.)
