HowNosm’s “Achtung!”

by Stephanie ChefasPosted on

On view at Known Gallery is ‘Achtung!,’ the solo debut of uber-graffiti twins HowNosm. Recognizedfor flawlessly executing massive murals with an impeccable attention to detail, the pair successfullybrings their work indoors via 15 large scale paintings and an epic sculpture installation. As the titlesuggest, Achtung! immediately establishes the duo’s intent to capture the viewer’s attention. The sparse,yet deliberate color palette of red, black and white emphasizes every dimension within each piece, creatinga constant push and pull from image to background. Allegories of wealth, greed, consumption, love andlife are a common thread throughout the body of work, conveying eternal messages of humanity. Thisvisual narration serves as a reminder to walk alertly through life and illustrates the inherent dangers of anapathetic existence. ‘Achtung!’ will be on view until November 5th. – Stephanie Chefas
