Widely known for designing the so called ‘Mickey Hands’, two glove like hands forming the letters L and A which have become an unofficial symbol of Los Angeles pride, OG Slick, who refers to himself simply as Slick, has shaped the graffiti scene like almost no other. A graduate of Art Centre College of Design, Slick not only impacted graffiti as an art form but also gained a reputation by designing for street wear brands in the 90s, like Stussy and FUCT, as well as for designing toys. Now the head of ‘Big Dick’s Hardware’ where he distributes graffiti paraphernalia as well as his own clothing brand ‘Dissizit!’ While Slick is still active, painting murals in his iconic style somehow referencing the Mickey hands, he exhibits and sells his canvas and sculpture works around the globe.
