Earlier this year, we unveiled FLOOD 12: The Los Angeles Issue, an expansive 232-page print edition celebrating our hometown, including a special cover feature honoring rap icon Nipsey Hussle. The cover art featured a classic shot of Hussle by iconic LA photographer Estevan Oriol, with new artwork by two other local legends: graffiti/fine artist Kelly "Risk" Graval and rock poster great Jim "Taz" Evans. Today we're thrilled to announce the unveiling of a limited edition art print of their collaboration, numbered to 300 and hand-signed by all three artists. The 19" X 19" archival giclée print on cotton rag was printed by Riskrock Studios.
50 percent of the proceeds from the print will benefit the Neighborhood Nip Foundation. Few artists have left as deep of an impact on this city both with their music and in the community as Nipsey Hussle, and his family is continuing his impact through the charitable efforts of the foundation in his name.
“Nipsey was a visionary who believed in the power of optimism, inspiration, and action,” his family stated to FLOOD. “Nipsey opened doors and created new pathways for people in the areas of self-development, entrepreneurship, education, employment, innovation, music, arts and culture, and technology. The Neighborhood ‘Nip’ Foundation will continue the legacy of Nipsey Hussle as a champion of the people.”
The print is on sale now here for a limited time.
