If you are in Paris you may have already spotted at the corner of a street the new work of the talented twins How and Nosm! For almost 30 years they have been expressing themselves on both walls and canvases, through elaborate and original compositions. They are easily identifiable thanks to the use of their signature color palette, consisting of white, red and black, which they cleverly arrange in their artworks. It is worth noting that they have been adding some nuances of purple lately, allowing their style to evolve. Each of their works contains multiple visual elements, some with special meanings, such as the bottle, referring to those thrown into the sea.
They recently had the opportunity to present two works during the collective exhibition “Walking down the Boulevard” at the Galerie Itinerrance last April. Shortly after, perched on a lift, they produced a monumental mural as part of the Street Art 13 project from April 28th to 25th. Adorned with shimmering colours, the new work is called Sun Daze, an expression evoking a state of mind combining well-being and relaxation. Thanks to the positive energy transmitted by heat, it is often associated with sunny Sundays. Both commented they made sure to rest the previous days, in order to be able to sustain an intense pace. The realization of this fresco was physically challenging for them due to its particularly large scale, but also their ten hours daily work. In addition, they wanted to progress as quickly as possible, mindful that the poor weather condition might slow down the progress of the work, making the use of the lift tricky. However, having followed their usual routine, like a carefully conducted choreography, all went down perfectly.
