JAMES M. RIZZI

Better known as JMR, James M. Rizzi has adapted a unique mixture of neo-abstract expressionism with hints of contemporary pop to create his style. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, JM Rizzi grew up with the influences of street art and the established art world constantly around him. Through his own individual, hybrid street style, he has dedicated himself to helping art fit into the outside world. As he looks to demonstrate the scale and motion set forth by early abstract expressionists, he reinterprets the ideas within his own personal adaptation. Having participated in the highly successful 11 Spring St show in 2006 and The Underbelly Project in 2010, he has gone on to create building sized murals in New York, a solo exhibition in Hong Kong, as well as large scale installations for Nike. JM Rizzi has shown with street art legends such as Blek Le Rat, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Aiko, Haring, and Basquiat. And has been featured in various street art books and editorial publications such as The New York Times, The London Times, The Wall Street Journal, Elle Japan and Milk HK. He has lent his designs to collaborate with Emilio Pucci, Proenza Schouler, and Jimmy Choo.
