How and Nosm: At the Center of It All


How and Nosm have painted a large-scale mural entitled At the Center of It All on the northwest side of Mana Contemporary’s facade. Known for their sprawling murals, which can be seen in cities across the world, How and Nosm work in an instantly recognizable style of intricate free-hand painting in red, white and black. Their multilayered, complex paintings reveal slowly unspooling narratives of urban existence. At the Center of it All, which stands 40 feet high and 60 feet wide, is painted in their signature style and was completed in just four days.

Basque-born, Dusseldorf-raised and currently Brooklyn-based, How and Nosm are twin brothers Raoul and Davide Perre. The brothers’ recent projects include a large-scale city mural installation and solo show at The Library Street Collective, Detroit; “Catch of the Day,” a mural installation curated by Jeffrey Deitch in Coney Island; and a collaboration with Donna Karen in Times Square.
