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.

Cone The Weird begibt sich mit seiner Soloaustellung inhaltlich auf schizophrenes Terrain. Einen Teil seiner Arbeiten widmet er dem Blick auf sich selbst. Dies geschieht in Form serieller Selbstbildnisse. Diese Abbilder müssen für Gedankenspiele und visuelle Experimente herhalten. Den konzeptuellen Ursprung dafür fand er in seinen gestalterischen Wurzeln, die im Graffiti liegen. Das Prinzip sich ein Pseudonym zuzulegen (die eigene Identität zu kaschieren) um dieses zu vervielfältigen, zu streuen und mit ihr zu experimentieren findet sich im Kern dieser Arbeit. Statt...

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... Read more..
