Sneak Peek: How & Nosm “Late Confessions”

Twin Street Artists How and Nosms’ new solo show titled “Late Confessions” with the Jonathan Levine Gallery opens tomorrow at a pop-up show in Manhattan. This exhibition, painstakingly executed in their now iconic style is a watershed moment in their transformation into contemporary artists with stellar street DNA.

The temporary Chelsea venue was under five feet of water in November because of Hurricane Sandy, and it is a fitting metaphor as the murky storm waters had to be laboriously pumped out and damaged walls replaced before the brothers could reveal this confessional journey through interconnecting storylines of personal history, subconscious, and memory.

A visitor is free to travel through four unique installations; A white chapel with shelved books and three dimensional walls, a red memorabilia room that includes framed stencils used on myriad walls, a spare dark alley with a glowing light box at the end, and an expansive room showcasing a glistening contemporary rococo sculpture lacquered in black paint. Compartmentalized and open, the show invites you to be intimate and stand back with graphically sharp, cheerful and dark, canvases and objects of varying size and complexity.

Self-constrained by a palette of red, white and black, the brothers show their athleticism and abundant confidence here, pushing themselves and their fans to expand and explore together. Give them space and they know how to go big across a wall or a gallery; give them a quiet minute and they’ll tell you a couple of secrets you would not have guessed.
