In 1988, after graduating from high school in Hawaii, Slick moved to Los Angeles in order to attend Pasadena's Art Center College of Design. He studied illustration there for about a year. In 1989 he and fellow graffiti writer Risk won first prize at Street '89, an international street art festival held in England in which writers from 11 countries participated. Slick often creates aerosol art pieces for rappers.
The building is the former home of Cinergi Pictures Entertainment, Inc. a small independent production company formed in 1992 by Andrew G. Vajna. Cinergi released a few major motion pictures from 1992 through 1998 Tombstone, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Nixon and Evita. They closed in 1998. Rock Paper Scissors just moved in "Rock Paper Scissors edits for the world's top directors, studios, and advertisers" along with a52 "imagery for some of the worlds best known commercials and music videos."
The mural will probably stay.
