Acclaimed street artist OG Slick found himself at the center of the West Coast Graffiti scene in the 80s
after moving to Los Angeles at the age of 19 from Honolulu, Hawaii.
Slick’s body of work ranges from traditional graffiti burners, streetwear, toy design, installations,
public sculptures, and painting. A fascination with natural decay and human destruction frame
Slick’s critiques of popular culture and normative behaviors. From the anti-branding re-work of both
startup and corporate logos, to battle driven, chiaroscuro influenced burners and deviously playful
sculptures, Slick’s creations ignite the emotions through satire and parody.
Slick’s iconic works have been presented in a variety of spaces including MOCA Los Angeles,
Beyond the Streets, and the Chinese American Museum of Los Angeles. He has also collaborated with internationally recognized brands such as Adidas, Levi’s, Disney, and Mercedes.
