Mr.Riks is a Bristol based Professional graffiti artist, Skateboarder, Surfer and Father.
“I started off writing graffiti in 1998, after meeting Swindon based artist/skateboarder ‘Ryder’ through a mutual love of skateboarding. My artwork has been described as traditional forms of graffiti crossed with graphic design elements. In 2004 I teamed up with Graffiti artists ‘Siren’ and ‘Epok’ to form the Bristol based graffiti crew ‘KTF’ (KeepTheFaith). 8 years later ‘KTF’ is now, an extremely established and respected graffiti crew within the Bristol/UK graffiti scene and has grown to 15 members including Ryder, Poer, Sepr, Posta, Molar, Haka, Lokey, Neaz, Ames, Devas, Deams and Reaf”.
