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
Pretty intense skull murals and art by Hungarian street artist Fat Heat. He has a superb array of images in his portfolio and many crazy skulls strewn about. His ‘About’ section is quite a refreshing read, no bullshit and pomp, just passion. Fat Heat’s art adorns walls, canvases and he even dabbles in the digital realm. He also has a damn fine website.
You can check out these skull murals and other work over at his Flickr account or his website.
Mr Ojey 80 is another skull appreciation lover and sent us his collection of digital skulls on Facebook. I promised to share them and why wouldn’t I. They are skullarific. Mr Ojey is also a skilled graffiti artist and you can check out his blog for more skulls and graffiti artwork.
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.
Screen print design created by Australian graffiti artist Meggs. Image found on Prefuse and this print my still be available for purchase on Everfresh Studio, but they are currently udpating their shop. I have a feeling they will be sold out as this print was released awhile ago.
