Randy Slack tends to borrow from his upbringing during the '70s and '80s; he says he's continuously inspired the time's logos, cartoons, paint-by-numbers, hot chicks, religion ... he goes on. Really, he says, "it's a subconscious collage of nostalgia that should make you giggle, then bring you in for deeper meaning.”

Slack's a Phoenix native and self-taught, full-time artist. He co-owns Legend City Studios in downtown Phoenix and is a co-founder of the artist collective 3CarPileUp and creator.curator of the Chaos Theory group exhibition now in its 16th year. Most of his creations are large-scale, surreal pop paintings, which he calls the "explosions in [his] life so far."
