Drawing from his art, what goes on inside the racing mind of NYCHOS belies any serenity his peaceful exterior may convey. The Austrian artist specializes in painting and illustration, using highly colorful, often dissected figures as expressions of his imagination. NYCHOS points this motif to his family background in hunting, an early childhood experience that has since grown into one of the more graphic styles today. Hypebeast got the opportunity to sit down with the artist to discuss early influences, evolving away from working with acrylic to work with spray paint, and more. Viewers will even get a look at a custom illustration made for Hypebeast in this installment of Pen & Paper.

The 10 year celebration theme for Roppongi Hills is “LOVE TOKYO.” We will be starting a movement here from Roppongi Hills to transform Tokyo into a more attractive and exciting “world-class city.” We are opening a 10th anniversary website in which users can experience 3D projection mapping on a miniature model of the city of Tokyo at a 1:1000 scale.
Participants can enjoy various motifs of the city: “Futuristic City,” “Rock City,” and a traditional Japanese “Beauty of Nature” motif by pressing the keys on a keyboard, as if playing the piano. Exploit the possibilities and make Tokyo more dynamic and exciting.

Pure White paper…
Even for a book editor and designer, Li Hongbo has an unusual attachment to paper. “I love it and collect it,” he says. He also does increasingly audacious experiments with it. The installation Paper (2010) began when Li Hongbo bought one of the “honeycomb” paper balls used for festive decorations in China and took it apart to see how it was made. “I realised it’s really quite simple,” he says. “Yet the flexibility in terms of shape and properties is amazing.” His take on this craft tradition is indeed amazing, and it is made entirely of common paper. With the help of an assistant, Li Hongbo stuck more than 30,000 sheets together with carefully placed stripes of glue to form what look like two large blocks of balsa wood. Using an electric saw, he carved these stacks into identical human figures. One he leaves intact, except for a toppled head; the other is stretched out like a vast accordion, its torso and limbs looping around the gallery space like a gigantic Slinky toy. Many visitors find it hard to believe that it ever looked anything like its upright twin. The artist hopes the work will awaken viewers to what captivates his own imagination: “the endless possibilities of paper.”

Imagine if one day capitalism reaches the point, where the big brands starts to sponsor the superheroes. How would this influence their images?

Judge, Jury & Executioner! A film showing a massive graffiti art mural tribute of Judge Dredd by Soulful Creative on the side of a warehouse near Heathrow airport, London. Soulful Creative artists Koze and Onion have created their own ‘little’ tribute to the great man himself and the 2000AD artist Simon Bisley, by painting a 60 sqm graffiti art piece designed around a graphic novel page spread. We hope that we have done them justice!
