ANATOMY in the STREETS – Roundup 3

The past few months have been full of incredible anatomical street art. So much so that it’s been difficult to keep up! Below are some of our favorites from our top street artists and even a medical illustrator!

Nychos is currently in New York City preparing for the opening of his solo show IKON at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in Manhattan on Saturday, June 25th, running through July 23rd. He created an anatomical portrait series of celebrities and fictional characters primarily from the 1980s.

By dismantling their anatomy he explores the humanity that exists underneath the mask of celebrity and confronts viewers with the core elements we all have in common: flesh and bones.

Prior to the opening of IKON, Nychos participated in the Coney Art Walls with an epic explosive Ronald McDonald head (above). He also unveiled a ten-foot tall sculpture, The Dissection of Sigmund Freud, at Flatiron Plaza on June 16th in cooperation with the Tourist Board of Vienna. Following the opening, Nychos will create a large-scale mural at a building owned by Mana Contemporary located in Jersey City near the approach to the Holland Tunnel.

Street Anatomy will be at the opening of IKON on Saturday, June 25th. This is not one to miss!

  1. @Jonathan Thanks! All the photos are from the artist’s Instagram with no credit to the photographers. Some I’m sure took the photos themselves or had people on their team do it. I usually try and credit the photographers when I can! They are an important part of the documentation of such incredible art!

  2. Great site, great art – thanks for crediting the artists, but why no credit/source for the photographers. Are these all taken by you are are you reposting?
