Shh...HUSH Is Coming to FIFTY24SF Gallery TonightJuxtapoz // Thursday, 02 Apr 2009
Shh... HUSH is hot pretty right now. Fresh off a successful LA solo, UK-artist HUSH will rock San Francisco’s FIFTY24SF Gallery with Veiled Beauty, opening tonight April 2nd, 2009 with a reception from 7 - 9:30pm.
Hush is an urban artist who worked in Hong Kong for a number of years as a graphic designer/illustrator before returning to the UK. His popularity is soaring, with sell out shows in London and Los Angeles, along with high profile street pieces, sold out print runs and collaborations.
Influenced by various facets of modern culture, he is inspired by graphic-novels, animation, graphic-design, graffiti art, urban art and contemporary painting. He’s known for his portrayal of female Manga characters juxtaposed with his mixed media layering techniques utilizing screen print, spray paint and multi-levels of paper.
The confluence of East meets West, destruction meets construction, and classic versus contemporary style, all leave the viewer feeling the same conflicts and energy that his work embodies.
Hush has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator and art director in London, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Hong Kong where he worked for a few of the largest toy companies in the world. His work has been featured in numerous selected exhibitions in London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Edinburgh and Newcastle. Now and again you might still see Hush on a wall in your city.
“Veiled Beauty” features new paintings on display at FIFTY24SF Gallery from April 2 - 26, 2009.
