Quick Intro Clip of some London Street Art by Nychos
I walk past these most days and now that I’ve watched the video’s I can’t believe what an amazing talent this man is.
NYCHOS is incredible and his work can be seen in most major cities – just watching his video’s now and the man is a graffiti machine, I still don’t know how he does it. Through Rabbit Eye Movement he has been mentioned on most high-profile art blogs and websites and is definitely one of the most well-known street artists of our generation.
Nychos’ work focussing heavily on dissection, anatomy, skeletons and skulls. His style is instantly recognisable and even if you don’t know the ‘art scene,’ once you’ve seen his work you will know straight away when you’ve seen it again. He is able to create art on a variety of mediums including A3 prints to huge fantastic murals which are cartoon-like in their execution but the level of detail he gets out of a tin of spray paint is mind-boggling.
Even though the main focus of his art is not skulls, what kind of Appreciation Society would we be if we didn’t mention him and give you the chance to see his creations and some great little vids too which show you some process shots.
I’ve had these pictures sitting in my Dropbox for months, but the street art is still there, and can be found on Cheshire Street just off Brick Lane, so thought it’s about time I pulled finger and gave these skulls a mention.
Dscreet does loads of street art in and around London – I mostly see his work in East London around Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Hoxton etc and really like hist style – he likes owls and skulls so we had so much in common already
I recently went to Paris and found a few skulls which I wanted to share with you all – I do not know the names of the shops/artists/creators so if you recognise any then please share the names with us. I was hoping to find more but here are some of the ones I spotted, apologies for some of the blurry images.
We are giving away the Book of Skulls to one lucky skull lover. The book, which we’ve blogged about before, is by Faye Dowling and includes a brief history of skulls in art and also loads of images of beautiful skull creations too.
*UPDATE – 18/01/2013: We have done our random draw and happy to announce that Leigh Froud is the winner of the book of skulls! CONGRATS

This is one of those pieces of art where that leaves me wondering if I like it. I mean the skill involved in cutting the design by hand, which looks like ultra fine mesh, is remarkable. On the other hand it is an image of Hitler.
What do we think guys? At least it depicts Hitler for the monster he was.
ORTICANOODLES do have other pieces that are less controversial with mages like ‘Pop Never Die’ depicting Andy Warhol and ‘Skate or Die’ depicting Jason Lee. Then they sway back into the grey again with images of the Queen with a skull face and skeletal body. They are actually pretty good.
