Podcast #006 – Nychos

For the sixth Podcast they talked to Nychos from Vienna, who has just returned from Los Angeles, his second home. We talk to him about his current projects in San José and Spain and the anatomy that can be found in all of his work. The probably best known graffiti artist from Austria likes to cut the Barbie doll, Spongebob, the Mona Lisa or other well-known figures from art and the mainstream and visualizes this impressively. The one-hour podcast is also about how it goes on with Nychos and his art, where he wants to go with it and why graffiti writing still plays a major role.

The Deepest Depths of the Burrow

Nychos is an illustrator, Urban Art- and Graffiti artist who became known with his street concept RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT (REM) 10 years ago. The icon of the movement is a white rabbit, which has been breeding since then and has been popping up in the streets all over the globe for the past decade. This is exactly what Nychos thrives for – he travels the world to spread his art and his REM concept. Within the last two years Nychos was accompanied by filmmaker Christian Fischer who recorded these journeys to create a full lenght movie. ”The Deepest Depths Of The Burrow” is a documentary about art, lifestyle and subculture. The movie captures the experiences of Nychos and other members of RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT within the last several years. Exceeding the Austrian scene, they flew from Berlin to San Francisco to Copenhagen to Hawaii and many more places to visit artists who all provide a unique view into their (street) culture – They lead Nychos through the streets of their home cities and show them the deepest depths of their burrows. ”Travel to paint, paint to travel” is the motto,which runs like a golden thread throughout the entire movie. Words, which catch the spirit of RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT. ”The Deepest Depths Of The Burrow” shows images which highlight the contrasts between Urban Art and Graffiti from various angles and captures the mutual passion for Urban Art in an unique way.

LORDS Crew – Mural Harbor, Linz 2015

A couple of weeks ago, the LORDS Crew was invited to contribute a painting to the Mural Harbor in Linz, one of Austria’s most innovative spots for Urban Art and muralism. The LORDS (Legends Of Rare Designs), founded in 1986 in San Jose, is a collective of Graffiti artists from California with members in Austria. To strengthen their special connection, austrian crew members Fader, Nychos, Phekt, Shed and Shue77 invited Graffiti legend Quake from San Francisco to paint this large scale mural together with them. ”Lords Of The Red Dragon” is the bursting outcome of a small crew reunion and celebrates the artists’ mutual love to Graffiti.

Nychos – Dissection of a polar bear in Vienna

Dissecting a polar bear is a 4 day mission – at least that’s what Nychos proved last week in Vienna. As part of our 10 year anniversary weeks and right before the world premiere of The Deepest Depths of the Burrow Nychos spray-painted a giant polar bear on a 24 meter wall. So far, it’s his largest mural in our home town. That’s what we call celebrating properly.
