Hush returns to Los Angeles with a new collection of work reflecting his unique blend of street and cross-cultural aesthetics. Playing primarily with the idea of duality, the exhibition is a carefully calibrated experience of Twinpaintings—15 mixed-media works on canvas.  Using the symbolic subject matter of the female form, Hush has produced a large-scale installation in which the gallery walls capture the essence of “action painting” and “pure expressionism” along with traditional elements of fine art.

As a body of work, TWINexplores the nature of duality.  By varying his approach to the same image, Hush exposes nature’s inherent polarity.  The juxtaposition of light and dark reveals the complexity of conflict and unity—and dichotomies present within the human ego.   TWIN is a fascinating confrontation and debate on common conceptions of power, innocence, beauty and sexuality.  The collection also represents the blending of the street art aesthetic- as simultaneously destructive and beautiful.

Hush trained as an illustrator/graphic designer at the Newcastle School of Art and Design, Hush’s art practice has taken him around the globe—throughout Asia, Europe and the United States. His immersion in such a diverse range of cultures and environments is evident in his work and his captivating portrayal of the undying beauty of the female form. Over the course of his travels, Hush developed a fascination with the mark-making, tagging and graffiti he encountered along the way.

Hush merges various street art approaches with traditional art practices to create complex and original work.  The artist presents contemporary depictions of traditional portrait and figurative imagery through an inventive mix of seemingly incompatible themes and aesthetics. Through his technique of layering divergent aesthetics, Hush’s contemporary paintings disclose the beauty produced by years of decayed tagging and the possibility of creating something new.

HUSH has participated in both solo and group exhibitions worldwide including galleries in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, London, Basel, San Francisco and Berlin. His work has been featured in a series of publications including: Street Knowledge (Harper Collins),  The Street Art Stencil Book (Laurence King Publishing),  Huckmagazine,  Art Monthlyand London’s newspaper,  The Independent(where he was recognized in their list of the “ Top 20 Up and Coming Artists”) .

In 2011 Hush will launch his new installation program and exhibition space,  onethirty3, in Newcastle, UK.
