Judge Panel:

 

• RISK: originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Risk’s career spans over 30 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.

• Noah Antieau: owner of Red Truck Gallery, an art gallery based in New Orleans with a focus on unique art and a welcoming atmosphere that is in warm opposition to the customary frills and stark white walls of the traditional art scene. 

• Frank Relle Photography: a photographer born and based in New Orleans, Louisiana. His work is included The Smithsonian Museum of American History, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
