Street Artist Nychos Dissects Disney in “Silly Slicesophy”

Austrian street artist Nychos is presenting a new art show in Brooklyn called “Silly Slicesophy” that consists of cross-sections and slice-up versions of classic Disney cartoon characters. Nychos has done slices of non-Disney characters in the past so it would appear that the slickly painted cartoon innards are his commercial shtick and not to be read as a specific statement on the Disney characters. The artwork from the show can be viewed online here. The show is on display through September 6, 2013, at the Mighty Tanaka gallery in Brooklyn (111 Front Street, Ste. 224).

    It’s also worth noting that Nickelodeon commissioned Nychos to do a SpongeBob mural for the main conference room.

      I wonder what a Simpsons, South Park and Looney Tunes one will be like?

      Word was this loomed large over a meeting where whatever high echelon mucky-muck extolled the virtues of teamwork and creativity – via higher percentages, cutbacks, and the need for everyone to work harder. Nero stands in front of a huge phallus while demanding Praetorian sacrifice.

    I always knew Mickey was controlled by the Illuminati

      Well there sure is a lot of ‘Illuminati symbolism’ in Gravity Falls…

      Not that I’m complaining, mind you.

    Reminds me of the now-retired “Human Slices” exhibit that was on display for decades at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. They were also featured in a segment of the Jack Palance version of “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!” TV series. A dead man and woman were both thinly-sliced and the sections placed between panes of Plexiglass.
