This Graffiti Artist Dissects Animals On City Walls
This graffiti artist named Nychos dissects animals all over city walls — through his art, of course.
Graffiti art is some of the most interesting art when done well. The artists typically put so much of themselves into one giant piece on a wall and, if the mural isn’t commissioned, run the risk of losing it forever if the building owner decides to paint over it. Case in point, the famous 5 Points Graffiti Mecca in NYC was one of the most culturally diverse landmarks of the city, and when it got painted over, hearts around the world were broken.
Luckily, graffiti artists are resilient, and Nychos is no exception. From their website:
Blending themes of morbid corporeality with the colorful, hyper-loony aesthetic descended from comics and cartoons, Nychos has developed a unique style that performs with powerhouse effect whether on the street or in the gallery.
In Nychos’ world, Spongebob has a skeleton, people live inside rabbits and there is always something wicked underneath. Pumped up on the visual adrenaline of comics, heavy metal and graffiti, Nychos’ work reflects the immense energy and technical focus necessary to produce work on the massive scale he has reached on the streets.
