A Look Into A True NYC Artist: Riz22

Riz22 one of those special artist that exemplifies the creative revolution. A young artisit at the age of 24, residing currently in Brooklyn New York. According to his myspace, "He is a self taught artist that began his artistic career the moment he could hold a pen. Since coming of age, Riz22 prefers to paint live, often painting in the manic environments of clubs and onstage at concerts." I have witnessed first hand the ability of Riz22 He has a way of developing more then just paint on a canvas. At an event this summer hosted by CloudKickers Original Clothing Line at Thatz Wassup located in Staten Island Riz22's energy and exceptional artisitic skills easily seperated him from the competition of other artists. A type of nomad leaving art across the country like paint on a canvas, he has lived in Atlanta, GA, Scottsdale, AZ, and San Diego, CA from 2001 through 2007 and now residing in the Prospect Heights of Brooklyn, NY. Part of a group of cultural artisits' called Old Soulz ( Below a couple of pieces of mastered work.
