How & Nosm Add Art to Detroit

If you've been downtown this week you may have noticed a new mural being created alongside Shepard Fairey's piece. The mural is the creation of How & Nosm, an art duo that has been brought to town in part by the Library Street Collective. This mural will add to the collection of large scale murals that these artists have created throughout the world, including works in Hong Kong, Art Basel Switzerland, and Chicago.

Here's some background on the artists. How & Nosm is actually the stage name for Raoul and Davide Perre. They are artists based out of Brooklyn, who also happen to be twins. Although they are Brooklyn based now, they actually grew up in Europe, born in Spain and raised in Germay.

The two artists are not only in town to work on the mural, but they also will have an exhibit at Library Street Collective this weekend. The show, which is being called In Between, is set to open on Saturday, April 23rd and will feature 12 works on canvas as well as 30 drawings. Their art is vibrant, and incorporates their background in graffiti and street art with classic influences like Dali & Picasso. You can some of their amazing work here.

Saturday's opening is set to begin at 7 p.m. and goes until 9 p.m. In Between will then be on display until June 12th. If you can't make it out to the opening this weekend, the gallery's regular hours are Wednesday thru Saturday from Noon until 6 p.m.

The Library Street Collective is located at 1260 Library Street in Detroit. For more information on the gallery, click here. If you would like to check out How & Nosm's mural, head downtown to One Campus Martius and look up. It's right around the corner from the park.
