How and Nosm | Storm Predictions! limited edition print release

November 01 2012 . 07:58pm

How and Nosm are delivering a one-two punch this week.  For the first time ever, the duo are releasing a limited edition print titled Storm Predictions – then making more waves in New York by embarking on a mural for the famed Houston and Bowery wall, which has showcased work by celebrated artists including Keith Haring, Os Gemeos, Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Shepard Fairey, JR, Faile, RETNA and AIKO.

The edition of fifty prints are individually embellished with the same skill and effort that is put into their mural and canvas work, making each one unique.  Using airbrush, India ink, collage and hand-cut stencils, each screen print is detailed with some of How and Nosm’s iconic imagery such as birds, hand painted water drops and hearts.

Available through Paper Monster on November 1 at 1:00 pm (EST) Storm Predictions, a 7-color screenprint on Coventry Rag 290 g/sm, is based on an original large-scale painting of the same title that is in the art collection of the late Tony Goldman, a noteworthy supporter of the German twin-brothers’ work. Goldman, along with Goldman Properties Arts Manager Meghan Coleman, enlisted HowNosm to paint some of their most ambitious murals to date, such as Personal Melody in Philadelphia, which was completed this past summer.  The twins are scheduled to begin the Houston and Bowery mural on Friday November 2, despite the obstacles caused by Hurricane Sandy.

How and Nosm are known for their large-scale graffiti based murals that adorn city walls around the world. The red, black and white-based imagery is instantly recognizable and commands attention through the impressive size and intricate detail. Initially the color palette was limited for practicality but instead has become a distinct calling card and formal choice that has allowed these artists to push spray paint to a new level.

Born in Spain, German in heritage, and currently residing in New York, their influence appropriately extends internationally. Whether you visit South America, Europe, Asia, or cities around the U.S. you will be likely to encounter their work. Commissioned and facilitated, they have become sought after artists, an ironic progression, where the outsiders have become insiders and are currently redefining what constitutes graffiti and public art.

An ambitious project involving numerous international contemporary artists and disused Military airplanes is set to make it’s debut on January 28th at the Pima Art and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. The Boneyard Project: Return Trip will include artists Andrew Schoultz, How & Nosm, Nunca(Brazil), Retna, and Faile who will all paint their own individual airplanes, along with cockpit from Saner(Mexico). We took a trip to the desert to get you these exclusive preview photos.

The concept for resurrecting the no longer active airplanes was conceived in spring 2010 by Eric Firestone, and organized with curator Carlo Mccormick. Also on display will be previous work from Eric Firestone Gallery’s Nose Job show that took place last year featuring artist such as Aiko, Bast, Crash, Daze, El Mac, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Erik Foss, Tara Mcpherson, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Kenny Scharf, and many more. We suggest that if you are near Tuscon to not miss this event!

KCET | A Year-End List for Los Angeles Murals

December 24 2011 . 01:01am

For a city with a moratorium on murals, the art form managed to be in the public eye in 2011. Street art took its place alongside traditional works, vintage works were restored, policy and enforcement were being questioned–all while ordinances that stopped new mural works from going up on private walls were being reviewed.

If you are not saddled with year-end list fatigue, here’s a timeline of some mural stories from the year.
