Artist Statement

Titled "The Warrior Archetype," Nychos' artwork, based on his Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans public mural in Santa Cruz, California, is a memento for women to embrace their change-making power as well as drive home how crucial it is to better protect and preserve the world's marine environments. The customarily lighthearted, cheerful mermaid Ariel is filled with anger at the state of the world's oceans. With issues ranging from coastal development, overfishing, pollution, and climate change, it is time that humanity wakes up to the reality of these challenges and stops pretending that everything will be okay. As a representation of Mother Ocean, she calls on us to become better stewards of the sea and fight for our planet's life-support system.

Artist Bio

Breaking surfaces, seeking depths – layer by layer. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, NYCHOS creates art in order to examine a question that has always been with him: How deep can you go? NYCHOS is an alter ego created by a kid who grew up amidst a clash of cultures: A world where Austrian Tradition and its Hunting Culture meets 80s pop culture, comics, and television. The visual input from back then still contributes to the output of the adult.

By the means of anatomy, NYCHOS investigates living species across different contexts and different media. His favorite tool is the spray can, his favorite surface is large. Questioning contrasts, he unifies looseness and accuracy. Severity and irony. The inner and the outer world. The dark and the bright. And most importantly, life and death. Within his oeuvre, one embraces the other. All becomes one.

NYCHOS creates art from deep within his soul. Deeply rooted in Graffiti and shaped by the visual inputs of his early years, his work comprises murals, fine art, illustrations, sculptures, and animations. NYCHOS is the founder of Rabbit Eye Movement, co-founder of THE WEIRD, and a member of the LORDS crew. His artworks have been exhibited worldwide, and his large-scale murals give character to cities all across the globe. He currently lives and works in both Vienna, Austria, and Los Angeles, California.
