Art Against Skincancer – Nychos

The skincancer awareness foundation Spot the Dot organized the very first “Art Against Skincancer” event together with Vienna based Design Agency Traktor on September 8. Besides hosting a group exhibition of fine art prints made for their cause they invited the world famous street artist Nychos to do a live painting inspired by the theme skincancer. He showed approx 150 visitors live and over 400k viewers via live video broadcasts how he makes such a facemelting mural.

This image will hopefully inspire many people to talk and think about the importance of prevention and detection of skincancer. More info via http://www.spotthedot.org

Spot the Dot is a non-profit foundation to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skincancer. Each year millions of people globally are diagnosed with several types of skin cancer. Melanoma is for example the leading cause of cancer death in young women ages 25-30 and the second leading cause of cancer death in women ages 30-35 (Source: Melanoma Research Foundation). When prevention fails, catching skin cancer early is crucial and highly treatable. Taking note of changes on your skin is key – Make sure you spot the dot!
