Earl’s Kitchen, an upscale restaurant chain out of Vancouver, BC Canada, asked us to paint some wall graphics in their downtown Denver location that would help direct folks to the upstairs bar and patio. I did not design the graphics, just did a bit of painting for them. We were painting on smooth tile so it took a bit of work to make sure the paint would adhere properly. The client wanted the restaurant graphics to have a distressed look so that’s what I did. Turned out pretty good, I dig it.
A recent wall painting I did for Bingo Burger in downtown Colorado Springs. This the the men and women’s bathroom. Painted with indoor latex paint. Turned out pretty good eh.

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.
