Nychos’ Trademark Dissection of Idols and Creatures

Graffiti artist Nychos grew up in the forested state of Styria in Austria. His dad and grandfather were both hunters; smelly animal corpses, guts and bones were commonly in sight and part of the artist’s everyday life. He once killed a fox, but it was the first and last time, as Nychos was not destined to become a hunter. His upbringing made him curious about anatomy and it also made him value life. “I never saw it as disgusting [hunting animals for food]—rather it shows you how much life is worth and how crazy a body really is. It makes you respect other lives.”
