Artist Bio 

The Austrian urban art and graffiti illustrator Nychos was born in 1982 in Styria, Austria where he grew up in a hunting family. Getting confronted by the anatomy of dead animals at an early age and being an 80’s kid with an interest for cartoons and heavy metal ended up being some of the ingredients which inspired him when he started graffiti and painting at the age of 18. Over the years he developed a distinctive style which stands out - his dissections and cross sections of human and animal bodies are easily recognised. The focus and reinterpretation of dissected motives in a combination of colourful outlines can be seen as his branding.

“Uniting the comic character with how a body actually works is really interesting to me”. (Nychos)

He is well known for his huge and technically outstanding art pieces in the urban environment as well as several gallery exhibitions. In 2013 he had solo shows in Detroit (Inner State Gallery), New York (Mighty Tanaka) and Turin (Galo Art Gallery), besides traveling the world, painting in over 15 different cities and participating in Art Basel Miami Beach, Pow Wow Hawaii and many other events. He’s currently seen as one of the most soughtafter artists of the street art scene. In 2014 three solo shows in San Francisco (Fifty24SF), Singapore (Mighty Jaxx) and Paris (Open Space) are planned amongst a set of festivals, events, conferences and fairs.

Nychos is also part of international graffiti and urban illustration crews like “The Lords”“The Weird Crew” and “The Jukebox Cowboys”.

Edition Fifty are delighted to announce the release of “Fucked Millennium” a stunning new print by grammy award winning artist, Stanley Donwood.

Donwood gained recognition in 1994 when he began designing album art for Radiohead. His work has since been used for 15 singles, 9 EPs and various studio albums including The Bends, Kid A, OK Computer, and Hail to the Thief. His evocative and haunting imagery has helped to create one of music’s most distinctive brands.

As an artist he veers from propagandist graphics to introspective illustrations, but a consistent strength is its combination of deep personal and political emotions with modesty and humour; weighty subjects examined not entirely seriously but certainly respectfully. 

Stanley commented:

“Fucked Millennium is a remix of a copperplate etching I made called ‘prime residential’. The original was, of course, black and white, but for this excursion I have added some colours and shapes formed accidentally through biofilm fluorescence scans of brain cell activity from a series of experiments carried out at the University of Bath. Additional colours were obtained through chromotographical experiments I carried out myself.”

Mike (Director of Edition Fifty) commented:

“We are thrilled to be working with Stanley on our second print release.  The contrast of colours and multiple layers within this piece are simply beautiful and almost have to be seen to be believed.”  

“Fucked Millennium” by Stanley Donwood goes on sale on Thursday 3rd July at 3pm (BST)

Further artists who will be releasing prints over the coming months include Massive Attack’s Rob ‘3D’ Del Naja, Will Barras, Flying Fortress and Nychos among many more.
