It has been very quiet surrounding the Spanish-born, German-raised and New York City based identical twin Brothers and urban artists How and Nosm (Raoul and Davide Perre). The street artists have been spending most of the last three months doing a residency at Watanabe Press in Brooklyn, working on a big project with Pace Prints. During this period, they created a new series of hand painted mono silk-screens for a street art show that’s scheduled for spring 2014.
By using their recognizable red, black and white color palette, with a small touch of pink, the brothers created heavily hand-painted works on paper that mix screen-printing, hand painting and stencils. The urban art duo insisted on adding acrylic and especially spray painted details, in order to lose the machine printed feel from their work.
These pieces feature all the recognizable How and Nosm elements – from geometrical, abstract and graffiti influenced characters, to familiar symbols and patterns that add that familiar depth to their work.
The print features unbelievable detail, the size of a two Euro coin. These details combined are like gear wheels of the clockwork art by How and Nosm.
The work by the street art twins always reminds viewers of traditional Japanese paintings fused with contemporary urban art.
Being fully involved in every step of the production, from rough sketches to pulling the colors on the screen and hand painting, these impressive 70 x 100 centimeter paper works are basically all originals. Each print is rendered to become a unique piece of art.
The street artists and Pace Prints will be giving a sneak peek at this body of work by introducing the first four pieces at the Pace Prints booth (#207) at the IFPDA Print Fair in NYC from November 6-10, 2013, and than few more at Art Basel Miami in December. We are exited to see the final prints and will keep you updated on their release.
