Mythical works of Street Art - Translucent Medusa

Œuvres mythiques du Street Art - Translucent Medusa
Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.

We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.

Translucent Medusa - Nychos

The HIYA Gallery series places and works legendaries of street art presents a fresco titled “Translucent Medusa” and created by Austrian artist Nychos in Aalborg, Denmark in 2015.

The mural was created thanks to We Aart, the first festival in Denmark to focus entirely on street art frescoes.

The impressive work took a few days to complete. Nychos created “Translucent Medusa” in his signature style of dissection, cross section, x-ray and translucency. After years of experimenting with the effect of "cuts", the artist evolved to find new compositions that would represent the interior of his characters. Working with these new styles allowed the artist to add more detail to each layer, achieving more realistic results.
