Slick x Big Sleeps Print Signing ~ Big Dick’s Hardware

10:11 AM PST on January 27, 2016

Big Dick’s Hardware in Compton played host to a Silent Stage Gallery print release/signing event. The artists involved with this print release are LA’s very own Big Sleeps & OG Slick. It all went down at Big Dick’s Hardware,  a dedicated graffiti and streetwear shop in South Los Angeles.

This is one of the first events at Big Dick's Hardware since opening its doors in April of 2015. The print release features Slicks infamous three lil piggies in police uniforms with lettering embellishments in the background and foreground of the print by Big Sleeps. Enjoy the photos by LA TACO's senior events photographer Erwin Recinos.
