Nychos opened his solo gallery show I’d Like To Meat You at Inner State Gallery in Detroit Michigan and Inside the Rock Poster has pictures from the show for you to enjoy. Nychos will showcased an entirely new body of work inspired by his love of anatomy, graffiti and Detroit’s Eastern Market, an area with a storied history as a hub for public murals produce and freshly butchered meat, all things the painter has long been acquainted with in his native country of Austria.
“My dad and my grandpa were traditional Austrian hunters, so I think that is where some of my interest in anatomy comes from. Seeing a deer dissected for the first time was very inspiring for me. Seeing all the guts and intestines drop out, it was a bit crazy at first,” Nychos told Hypebeast while painting at the world’s premiere street art festival Pow Wow Hawaii earlier this year. “Using all of this anatomy I think have found something I can stick with and really go crazy on. It’s staying fresh for me because I am always finding new ways to do it.”.
He also had some new prints on display that are part of his Indiegogo funding project perks for Austrian documentary filmmaker Christian Fischer project to capture the journey of a rising artist in the international art scene. The film -- titled “From The Deepest Depth of the Burrow”, a play on his Rabbit Eye Movement concept -- will follow Nychos as he travels throughout North America and Europe creating murals, graffiti and preparing for numerous gallery shows.
