The Dissection of Sigmund Freud – Hot New Sculpture in Flatiron Plaza!
Reported by Stephanie Sioufas and edited by the Flatiron Hot! News Editorial Staff
The Dissection of Sigmund Freud is the newest sculpture in the Flatiron Public Plaza by artist Nychos. Take the one-block walk from the NYC Seminar and Conference Center during your lunch break to see the very intriguing sculpture.
Nychos is an artist who grew up in Vienna, Austria. Similar to Sigmund Freud, he is very interested in dreams and the unconscious which is what helps fuel his art. Besides his interest in Freud, he is very much inspired by the anatomy of all types of animals and he spends much of his time at the Museum of Natural History admiring the skeletons of animals from the past.
Nychos started by researching the anatomy of humans by visiting museums that display skeletons of people who have gone through different tragedies. After getting a good idea of what the inside of a person would look like, he focused on Sigmund Freud. Due to the fact that Nychos is more of a mural painter and less of a sculptor, he took to the streets first and painted his magnificent creation before he sculpted it. He created the massive sculpture piece by piece before putting it all together, making it the largest he has made to this point.
It is currently in the Flatiron Public Plaza down the street from NYC Seminar and Conference Center and it is sponsored by Vienna Therapy, an organization that promotes the importance of understanding oneself and the subconscious.
This extremely unique sculpture will only be at this location for the next few days, so make sure to stop by on the way to or from NYC Seminar and Conference Center!
