Very sad news, he'll live on through his art. RIP
just did a google images search of "the pizz" to see his work. very cool stuff.
What happened to him? How did he die?
That's just a bitch.
Rest in peace.
Pizz, Franco, Mc Fail, artists that kept the Custom/low brow art and vehicles alive during a time that most thought Customs were Low Riders.
I would see him with the other Beatniks at the shows.
Amazing artist that will be missed.
Truly a legend and will be missed for sure! Terrible news and thoughts and prayers go out. R.I.P.
Wow..bummer always loved his artwork.
Was his passing sudden and unexpected. Very sad .
Way too young and talented! Very sad news indeed. Condolences to his family and friends.
here's some info on him, he was only 57:
IMHO..My generations Ed Roth.. RIP
57 is too young! Sad.
And still, no one has mentioned what happened.
From what I have been able to find out sadly it sounds like he took his own life.
Damn. I hate hearing that.
very sad.... such talent
Besides his art, I've always loved his '58 Chevy....
I hate to hear that he ended his own life. That's the scuttlebutt that's been trickling down to me as well.
We never know what demons one faces from day to day, night to night. Although one appears happy and graceful while around others, it's when they are left alone, with only their thoughts, do they reach deep into the darkest depths of their minds and allow the monsters to get them.
Next time you see and old friend or aquintance, ask them how their doing, how they are "truly" doing. Offer them your ear, no matter the time of day, or night. Let them know you're there for them. You just never know when someone may really need you.
Truly sad indeed, thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. We may never understand the reasoning, but we can celebrate who he was and what he did while he was with us. Godspeed The Pizz
