“The Deepest Depths of the Burrow” Documentary
NYCHOS (@nychos) is an Australian graffiti artist and illustrator that became known with his clever street concept Rabbit Eye Movement (REM) 10 years ago, in which the icon of a white rabbit popped up in the streets worldwide. I got familiar with his work back in 2013, when I stumbled across his unique art that depicted the layers of animals, separating the layers of skin, organs, and bones to showcase their anatomy. They are so awesome, and a visual treat to look at. Since then, I’ve been following his work and haven’t looked back. That brings me to this documentary.
Throughout the last 2 years, Nychos was accompanied by filmmaker Christian Fischer, who recorded his worldly journeys in efforts to create a full length movie. “The Deepest Depths of the Burrow” is a documentary about art, lifestyle, and subculture. Of course, the whole thing is narrated by Nychos, with an interview as well, but you can also expect interviews with equally talented artists, such as Buff Monster, CONE, L’Amour Supreme, Tristan Eaton, LOOK, the Bushwick Collective, Jasper Wong, and others. Special features from 123 Klan, Dabs & Myla, INSA, Jeff Soto, Jersey Joe, LOW BROS, MADSTEEZ, Ron English, and more.
“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 â€“ They lead Nychos through the streets of their home cities and show them the deepest depths of their burrows. â€Travel to paint, paint to travelâ€ is the motto,which runs like a golden thread throughout the entire movie. Words, which catch the spirit of RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT. â€The Deepest Depths Of The Burrowâ€ 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.”
