NYCHOS

NYCHOS THE WEIRD | Vienna

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.

Raised in a traditional Viennese hunting family, death and dissection were daily business for Nychos. The proximity to animal viscera had a profound effect on him psychologically and visually – he now explores the theme of dissection in his art, pushing it to playful extremes. 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.

Colliding style and subject matter, Nychos slices up animals and innocent childhood characters with unflinching graphic precision. His work confronts the viewer with wicked insistence, using the shock of cartoon violence as a vehicle for exploring subtler themes of mortality and temporality. Nychos pays homage to these deathless cartoon heroes by peeling them open and giving them human substance. His artwork reflects the psychology of an art scene in which creations are sometimes swept away as soon as created. Nychos also uses subtle imagery such as plastic in an orca’s belly, weaving political commentary seamlessly into his pieces.

Using delicious color-scapes and wild, fuming lines to create his characters – whether with paintbrush or spray can – Nychos works with unmatched dynamism. His command over his tools indicates a work ethic that promises only more staggering output from this artist. Nychos’ paintings and drawings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide, including six solo exhibitions (Turino, Detroit, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Paris) in the past two years alone. These pieces serve as unique compliments to his massive public works that give character to cities all over the world. The artists’ next solo show takes place in Zurich and is going to open in October 2015. A cooperation with Jonathan Levine is planned for 2016. Nychos currently lives and works out of Rabbit Eye Movement, his studio and art space located in Vienna.

S.o.S

S.o.S | UK

facilitator, collaborator, muralist, artist, curator, maker, designer

“As I grow as an artist, I’ve become increasingly aware, concerned and motivated surrounding issues of ethics, sustainability and of course the impact on political agendas through my creative practice.”

S.o.S is an emerging multimedia and street artist based in Brighton, UK. After graduating from her first degree in Fashion & Textile design in 1989 from Middlesex University London, she developed a career in Paris as a footwear designer, later evolving her path from consumer product design into marketing and advertising design.  While she was a product designer for Brown Shoe Corp, S.o.S was instrumental in delivering ongoing consumer product design campaigns & themes for “Blue-chip” licensing programs in entertainment such as Disney and Warner Bros.

She is interested in using her conceptual skills and her ability to tune into changes in social trends in order to help change perceptions and create positive social change.  She would like to make art accessible to as many people as possible, including more hard to reach or vulnerable individuals. Through her MA Inclusive Arts Practice at the University of Brighton she specialised in creating art interventions in the street for her final arts research project. After investing hundreds of hours into this genre, she is beginning to understand how the almost simple act of creating a mural, or using spray paint to engage with youth, is a powerful medium to communicate. Street art and graffiti writing as a genre can have a really positive effect on the community by transforming urban spaces which may be traditionally considered neglected because of tagging issues into spaces that the whole community would like to see. Even artwork which is painted over in the street can still do it’s work for a cause via social media, and this is something she had learned through her practice when her Alice against FGM mural’s message was spread on-line when she participated in Femme Fierce 2015.

SOBEKCIS

SOBEKCIS | Serbia

Our love for graffiti is what motivates us, what drives our actions, the right choice of colors and the love to details are our goal . Belgrade was the foundation where we started around 2005 and got into graffiti by seeing some pieces and tags around the neighborhood and seeing photos of pieces that our cousin’s friends painted. With Sobekcis as one name we try to illustrate the unity of two brothers – Sobek & Kcis.  Together we’re in Heavy Artillery Crew with our homies Aroe – Gary – Gebes – Jiroe – Ponk – Relay – Rifle -Storm – Taco – Twesh – Mr.Wany and Alert. The crew means a lot to us because it is something that we hold in very high regards, and also, in in a way, being in a crew with so many talented writers helped us to elevate our game by constantly pushing us to reinvent ourselves.

Vunik

Vunik | Serbia

He is a 22 year old artist,based in Belgrade,SRB. Currently living in Vienna where he`s finishing his studies at the university of Applied Arts. He has interest both in graffiti letters as well as illustrative characters. In  graffiti he enjoys experimenting with shapes, colours and different renders, so sometimes he doesn’t focus on the sketch that much, but he focus on the effect that surrounds him. As far as his studio work goes, his attention is drawn towards painting natural motives. Mostly warping the shapes in different ways and trying to create some different aesthetics. His style is changing from time to time, so at the moment he would like to call it Contemporary Illustration.
