British, b. 1976

Formally trained at the Newcastle School of Art & Design, Hush merges street art techniques, traditional painting practices, and eastern images of feminine beauty and sensuality to create complex and original work. Hush’s mark-making bears the distinct aesthetic of tagging, bringing the rough texture and immediacy of graffiti art into each piece. Swift gestural marks underlie splashes of paint, looping through lines and over bright combinations of colour. His unique style is recognizable through its focus on the female form and densely layered, intricately patterned backgrounds. Hush has participated in both solo and group shows worldwide including galleries in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, London, Basel, San Francisco and Berlin.
