Nychos is from Vienna, Austria and does amazing graffiti murals all over the world.
He is known for his characteristic dissection, cross-section, x-ray and translucent styles, often portraying animals and characters drawn from pop culture.
Born into a family of hunters in Bruck an der Mur, Styria, Austria, Nychos was fascinated by the anatomical details resulting from the exercise of hunting from an early age.
The proximity to animal viscera had a profound effect on him psychologically and visually
Nychos defines his work as a fusion of graffiti, heavy metal, cartoons and anatomy. He uses the shock of cartoon violence as a vehicle for exploring subtler themes of mortality and temporality.
In most of his works on canvas and murals the main characters are depicted dissected, transparent or melting with their insides on display.
The latest style that has surfaced is the use of translucency to create an x-ray effect in his works.
Nychos is known for the speed in which he paints his large murals. His biggest mural to date, titled “Translucent Serpent,” was completed in August 2016 for the Mural Harbor Street Art Project. The piece in Linz, Austria, occupies a space of nearly 9,700 sq ft, and was painted in only 5 days without assistance.
Nychos currently lives and works out of Rabbit Eye Movement, his studio and art space located in Vienna, Austria.
