INTRODUCING Risk IV: The Art Of Expression
A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
As an artist and creative, especially one in the 21st century, I think often times it’s easy to be weighed down by the wave of consumerism and commercialism that many times plagues the creative mind. We live in a world of mass produced prototypes that may be profitable for monetary gain, but in my eyes as an artist still leave me yearning for something more, something with depth and substance.
Instead of trying to ride with the tide, I wanted to push forward and create a body of work that challenged not only some of societies so-called “boundaries”, but my own.
We live in some of the most diverse times, but also divisive. Our goal with this issue, and every single issue of Risk Magazine, was to spread a message of FREEDOM, ACCEPTANCE, and LOVE. Artistic expression is one of the purest forms of sparking REVOLUTIONARY thinking in the minds and hearts of the world, and as a creative outlet and source, we set out to create a body of work that not only conveys emotion, but enforces positivity and love. Risk introduces “The Art of Expression”.
