Risk and Nathan Ota ~ Our Favorite Taco


RISK and Nathan Ota have an impressive collaborative show up now at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City. The show is up until March 8th, so you still have time to stop in and see the new work. In the meantime, please enjoy this preview, but not before we find out the duo's favorite taco spot in Los Angeles. So, Risk and Nathan Ota, what's your favorite taco?

Our favorite taco spot is La Reyna taco stand outside the restaurant on the corner of 7th and Mateo. Specifically the stand at night, not the restaurant. Risk also says that when he's had one too many drinks, nothing beats jack in the Box-- 2 tacos for 99 cents :)

Thanks guys! Keep reading for images from the show and its creation, as well as a video interview with RISKY about his latest mural in DTLA.
