Satty (Wilfred Podriech), born in Brennen, Germany in 1939, began making pictorial collages in 1966, inspired by the openness and creativity of San Francisco's hippie era. He became a prolific artist, creating hundreds of black and white collages, many of them printed by the becoming poster market and in the underground and establishment press. He produced two collage books, The Cosmic Bycicle and Time Zone, and his work has been exhibited in many galleries and museums. Terence McKenna chose the Satty's collages to illustrate his Archaic Revival book.
Satty died in San Francisco in 1982.
