THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF THE BURROW – Nychos x Christian Fischer

THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF THE BURROW – A Documentary about Lifestyle, Art and Subculture

Nychos is an illustrator, Urban Art- and Graffiti artist, who became known with his street concept RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT (REM) 10 years ago. The icon of the movement is a white rabbit, which has been breeding since then and has been popping up in the streets all over the globe for the past decade. This is exactly what Nychos thrives for – he travels the world to spread his art and his REM concept.

Within the last two years Nychos was accompanied by filmmaker Christian Fischer who recorded these journeys to create a full length movie. ‘The Deepest Depths Of The Burrow’ is a documentary about art, lifestyle and subculture. The movie captures the experiences of Nychos and other members of RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT within the last several years. Exceeding the Austrian scene, they flew from Berlin to San Francisco to Copenhagen to Hawaii and many more places to visit artists who all provide a unique view into their (street) culture – They lead Nychos through the streets of their home cities and show them the deepest depths of their burrows.

‘Travel to paint, paint to travel’ is the motto, which runs like a golden thread throughout the entire movie – words which capture the spirit of RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT. ‘The Deepest Depths Of The Burrow’ shows images which highlight the contrasts between Urban Art and Graffiti from various angles and captures the mutual passion for Urban Art in an unique way.

Denial – Studio Visit

While we were out in the States, Canadian artist Denial was recently over the border in Detroit for his part in the 1xRun ‘Murals in the Market’ project. We caught up with him there and skipped back over the border to check out his studio in Windsor, just across the water from the Motor City. Currently he shares his artist’s playground of a studio with the director of Australian print company Stupid Krap, Ben Frost, when he’s in the country.

In his own words, Denial takes us on a photo tour through his studio and neighbourhood…
