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. Hush is stimulated, influenced and driven by his cross cultural experiences. 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.
His work has been describe as “a sensory assault of shape, color, 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.
