HOW & NOSM (In Progress) ~ Downtown LA

During CicLAvia, we stopped by to visit Daniel of the LA Freewalls project (click link for more photos and video), which is curating some incredible art in DTLA and seems to be getting bigger and more exciting every day. One of the largest-scale murals to date is close to completion by international artists How & Nosm. From their website:

HOW AND NOSM (RAOUL AND DAVIDE PERRE)The twin brothers HOW and NOSM are graffiti artists and professional muralists residing in New York. Born in the Basque country of San Sebastian, Spain, the Perre brothers grew up in Düsseldorf, Germany practicing the Bronx-born art form of graffiti. Their late teenage years were spent spray painting the world, visiting many of the more than 50 countries in which they both left their remarkable artwork on any kind of surface including subway trains. During a visit to New York in '97 HOW and NOSM were asked to become members of the legendary TATS CRU, and permanently relocated to New York shortly thereafter in '99 – a move that marked their transition from painting on trains, and even the Berlin Wall – to creating elaborate murals for a number of known commercial clients such as SONY.
