HUSH
Hush combines street art with more traditional art practices drawing influence from graphic novels, animation and the evanescent quality of street art. His central focus is the female form, in particular iconic and Pop Art renditions, blending Eastern and Western cultures and iconography, he confronts and examines "the power, innocence, beauty and cunning of feminine sexuality". Originally trained as a graphic designer at Newcastle School of Art and Design, Hush's dynamic approach to urban art has brought him to the forefront of the Street Art Movemement with an extraordinary style that is unmistakable. From the artist's outdoor pieces to his limited edition prints, the hand-finished elements on his pieces create the sultry, emotive quality he achieves so effortlessly in his portraits. Hush is well-known throughout Asia, Europe and the US. The Independent listed him as one of their ‘Top 20 Up and Coming Artists’ and the artist’s work has been featured in the publications Street Knowledge and The Street Art Stencil Book. In 2011 Hush opened an exhibition space in Newcastle called ‘onethirty3’, which hosts six wall-based installations every year.
