“Nothing But Trouble” Limited Edition Prints by Sleek celebrate Beano, Oor Wullie

Sleek is a young, classically trained artist who found his distinctive style by connecting street art together with pop art, creating a fresh new fusion genre – and has just released a range of limited edition Beano and Oor Wullie-inspired prints, working with Selkirk-based Covell Publishing.

The “Nothing but Trouble” collection – each Signed Giclée Limited Edition print limited to just 195 copies, priced £595 each – is inspired by Sleek’s Scottish culture and a strong connection to iconic figures, and he spent many months in the DC Thomson archives seeking the inspiration for this collection.
