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.
An introspective portrait of Heavy Metal connoisseur and artiste extraordinaire: Nychos. Invited by Openspace gallery in Paris to present his favorite drawings firstly made on huge murals over the last year, Nychos, took a break to put a bit of Hard Rock tones with a romantic twist in an industrial yet poetic site.
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.
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.
