This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Beginning his career as a figurative artist, John Riddle altered his focus as a result of the Watts riots to themes of African Americans. He explored their harsh conditions in south-central Los Angeles and from the debris left from the riots, created welded-steel sculptures expressing those ideas. One work, "The Ghetto Merchant," was created from a cash register from a fire-gutted store.

Riddle became curator of the California African American Museum in Los Angeles.
