Hush is a graffiti artist who has been working in Japan for a number of years as a toy designer but has recently returned back to the UK. He has hit the streets running. The artist who goes by the name of Hush is a prolific street artist who has taken to fine art as well. His work depicts geishas with generally high contrast images that layer up graffiti to create complex patterns. A lot of the work relies on a palette comprised of primary colors. Hush is stimulated, influenced and driven by his cross cultural experiences. Having trained as a graphic designer and illustrator at Newcastle School of Art and Design, his work has taken him across Asia and Europe, whilst simultaneously developing his prominence as a contemporary artist. His fascination with Asian graphic novels is juxtaposed with inspiration from the likes of Mimmo Rotella, Lichtenstein and Sir Peter Blake, creating a unique style that has led to worldwide acclamation. Hush’s work has been described as a sensory assault of shape, colour, and character. He is inspired by the portrayal of the female form in art, he builds up and tears down layers of paint and images as he works, “letting the canvas and marks take their own path.” The result is an enigmatic synthesis of anime, pop-infused imagery, graffiti, and graphic design that exposes the conflict between power and decay, innocence and sexuality, and the fusion of Eastern and Western culture.
