How & Nosm's "Achtung!"

This Saturday, October 15th, How & Nosm will be presenting their first solo show, "Achtung!" at Los Angeles graffiti headquarters, Known Gallery. Comprised of 50 seamlessly intricate pieces that showcase their relentless drive and darkly comic vision, this show is destined to up the ante for graffiti-related shows for years to come.


Identical twin brothers, How & Nosm were born in the Basque region of Spain, grew up in Düsseldorf, and began hitting walls and trains worldwide in their teens, eventually leaving their mark in more than 50 countries. In 1997, on a visit to New York, they were invited to join the highly respected Tats Cru. Since then, the twins have relocated to the Bronx and have become legendary in their own right for their swift, flawless execution of incredible murals.

Make sure to check out their latest effort, "Heartship," a massive wall located at 900 Traction Avenue in the downtown Arts District. I swung by there on Saturday and took a few pictures of the twins putting the finishing touches on their six-day labor of love.
