Risk has been devoted to art in electric media, exhibiting electric and kinetic fine art for over 25 years. His fascination with neon began in one of his early studios where he met a neighbor who made neon signs. Risk took hundreds of random scrap pieces and strung them randomly from fishing wire. He began clustering groups together by color to evoke emotion or cast a mood. "I love neon because you can use it to evoke emotion. It is also synonymous with Los Angeles."
