ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Born in Shanghai, China into a family of accomplished and celebrated artists and painters Linda Chang Wyrgatsch moved to Taiwan and graduated from the Shanghai Teachers Academy before moving to Hawaii in 1965 where she went on to work as artist for 30 years. At The University of Hawaii she would study Chinese watercolor painting under the guidance of renowned master painter Lam Oi Char. Her son Richard Wyrgatsch better known as Slick is also an accomplished artist in his own right. 

Slick's rise to the top can be traced back to the mid 80's, from painting on the streets of Honolulu to the mean streets of Los Angeles. Slick spent his early years attending Art Center College Of Design during the day and doing graffiti at night.

The legendary "Slick vs Hex" graffiti battle was pivotal moment in Slick's career. He went from underground hell raiser to garnering worldwide acclaim, forever changing how graffiti characters are painted to this day. The international attention opened the doors for Slick to paint everything from music videos, feature films, album covers to full fledged gallery exhibits. It was during this time, he realized he could reach a larger audience by putting his art on t-shirts. Since his first designs in the late 80's, Slick has designed graphics for the likes of Stussy, X-Large, Adidas, Obey, Disney and the list goes on. His graphic design aesthetic has influenced an entire generation of artists/designers. He pioneered a movement called "street wear" long before the term was even coined.

Slick's main focus nowadays is his clothing brand Dissizit! Over the past 12 years, Dissizit has established itself as a brand not to be taken lightly with their “take no prisoner" attitude on it's assault on pop culture. Slick’s "LA Hands” logo icon has become a sort of an anthem and symbol for Los Angeles pride!

Whether it's painting a mural, designing a sneaker, formulating a paint scheme for an automobile, art directing graffiti for a video game, creating an entire collection season after season for Dissizit, or as small as signing his name for a fan, Slick treats each and everything he touches as a work of art that's worthy of being Slick.

25+ years in the game and Slick still has shown no signs of slowing up.
