HUSH’s Exhibition in L.A.

UK street and fine artist HUSH is known for his mixed techniques of collage, graffiti, stencil, painting and drawing that have translated directly from street to gallery.
HUSH participated in both solo and group exhibitions and shows worldwide, including galleries in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, London, Basel, San Francisco, Melbourne and Berlin.

HUSH is debuting his new collection of work in L.A. on Saturday, May 28th at Corey Helford Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles (571 S. Anderson St.).

HUSH’s unique style is recognizable through its focus on the female form set within backgrounds filled with an expressionist’s freedom of layering and color.
He is known for bringing the rough texture of street art and graffiti into each piece.

“HUSH, inspired by detritus, uses futuristic silvers and blacks clothed in a chaotic collage of colour to create a sensual blizzard of femininity, power and loss. Painted in grayscale, often with the eyes blacked out, HUSH’s female faces are dehumanized. By reducing them to shells of sexuality, he perfectly encapsulates the transient nature of modern life as well as the timeless forces of passion and desire. In what appears to be a luxurious and opulent tale, the hidden truth may reveal otherwise. HUSH lets us in, “Classical Sirens and Japanese Geishas, be prepared to be seduced and discarded like a piece of old flypaper.” […]
“Some people think my women are serene, others that they’re dark. What is clear is the power of their sensuality”, says HUSH.”*

    These are fantastic!!!
    I love the rhythm and flow the patterns give the pieces. Although, the lack of eyes kind of gives it a haunted look all the ornamentation help balance it out and breathe some life into the artwork. Great contrasting elements and mediums.

    Thanks for sharing!
