Hush currently debuting a solo show at Corey Helford Gallery in LA | building powerful portraits of pale-faced geishas with floral forms and graf tags; these figures appear to emerge from Hush’s paint strokes and personify his entire painting process | Rather than creating a tension between the delicate costumes and hair of the geisha’s and the harshness of graffiti, Hush does away with the contrasting connotations | We see more similarities than differences between the traditional Japanese textile patterns and the contemporary urban letter styles | Embracing the way tags accumulate and degrade over time on city walls, Hush creates his compositions by adding layers of painted and screen printed imagery | boobosh is a big fan, we’ll be looking to acquire a piece for our HQ, funds permitting.
