Anatomical Murals

Nychos grew up in a little village near Graz (Styria,South of Austria). He calls it the green hell.

Born into an Austrian hunters family, he saw, at a very young age, things which normal people would consider as cruel and brutal. He quickly got used to death and any other brutalities of nature. His mind never took it as something disgusting. Rather he started to see some beauty in those ugly things.

One day, when he was about six he found a little dead baby lamb under a trashcan. First he was shocked as he saw that cute but dead little animal. Something was weird about it. When he looked closer he realized that half the body was eaten up by maggots which had the same color as the lamb’s fur.

Crawling and moving pretty fast, they were covered up by the trashcan and didn’t like the light. Suddenly he wasn’t shocked anymore and enjoyed looking at one life growing on another past life.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
