First Time Collaboration TAZ, Risk & Dennis Morris

by Pierre Vudrag on Friday, November 23, 2018
 TAZ aka Jim Evans recently collaborated with some friends for two pieces for Limited Runs’ first annual Pop Art Photo Show, a four-day event featuring the best in Vintage Posters, Photography & other Pop Culture Art held at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California limited edition prints feature TAZ, Kelly Graval aka RISK, and Dennis Morris (legendary Bob Marley and Sex Pistols photographer and Shepard Fairey collaborator).

Sex Pistols print

The establishment has lost its way, and the youth are gaining control, sound familiar? The spirit of punk is alive again, and this print by Jim Evans aka TAZ captures the spirit of ’76. Working in collaboration with legendary photographer Dennis Morris, Evans took Dennis’ original photo from ground zero of the Sex Pistols punk explosion and transformed it to make a fresh statement. Urban rubble and an empire in tatters are imbued with an updated color palette based on the artistic engagement between TAZ and artist RISK, revealing a psychedelic multi-layered print. The final print was made and signed at Risk Rock Studios.


Peter Tosh Print


When Legalize It by Peter Tosh was released it had a huge cultural impact, the packaging, the music, and of course, Peter himself. Photo legend Dennis Morris was there at the time and captured a series of images that show Peter at that seminal time. Jim Evans aka TAZ has collaborated with Dennis to create a unique piece that tries to capture the spirit of the original shot while updating it with an impressionistic take on color and design. Dennis’ iconic shot now becomes something more symbolic, with color that evokes the artistic collaboration between TAZ and the artist RISK. The final print was made and signed at Risk Rock Studios.TAZ-Risk-Dennis-Morris-Peter-Tosh-Art-Print-2018-2
