NYCHOS just busted out another burner in his hometown of Graz, Austria for Livin’ Streets Festival (sponsored by Inoperable Gallery). Painted down eight stories of abandoned fish food factory near the center of Graz, “Puff the Magic Dragon” is a wicked, fuming Chinese dragon whose name may or may not have something to do with what’s in the dragon’s claw. Look closer and you might catch some extra cheesy surprises hidden in this massive mural. Photographs by Picks Magazine.

Rabbit Eye Movement is an Agency, which means we connect brands with artists for a wide variety of projects. Two weeks ago we did this project for Volvo in Switzerland.
Volvo Art Session is a live art project taking place in Zurich’s main railway station that finds “selected Swiss and international artists applying their creativity to a Volvo car” The organizers of the event invited Nychos as one of the artists for their fourth year of the event.
On May 16th, the Austrian artist was seen live painting, applying his recognizable explosive dissected concept onto one of Volvo vehicles. Cleverly using the idea of dismounting the car into basic car parts and painting its anatomy, the end result is a very effective 3D piece. Showing the car as an organic form, the artist once again proved his impeccable technical skills using spray paint. But also, he successfully matched the idea of these art sessions as “an expression of Volvo’s outstanding design expertise and innovativeness.”

REM produced two limited edition T-shirts and two prints together with Cone for his ICONES Number 1 show in May/June 2014 at the REM art space. They are available at our Art Space but also in our web shop!
The prints are all numbered and signed by Cone
The T-shirts are all unisex, available in size S,M,L
ICONES – Number 1 contains a selection of the kind of ink drawings CONE is well known for. Selfies, tributes and ridiculous confessions are their subjects. The self portraits are a serial work with its conceptual roots in his graffiti background. Instead of styles or tags he spreads his variations of the beardedman with glasses and experiments with that image in a for- mal as well as autobiographical manner. Using his own character enables him to make these works a bit more personal while at the same time exploring the depths of his consciousness and phantasies. The second part of his show contains a number of tribute drawings focusing on personalities he is impressed by in some way, featuring not only musicians, writers and scientists, but also dubious characters from the shallow waters of tabloid journalism.
