Transatlantic traveling artist Hush (interviewed) is set to pick up another stamp in his passport and some frequent flyer points in a couple of weeks time when his latest solo show entitled “Passing Through” opens at San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery on May 1st. AM went over to his Newcastle studio space to check out the work in progress as he was almost about ready to crate and ship the work.

The new body of work is set to signal a final farewell to his manga stylings after his last all-out manga inspired show at Urban Angel in London (covered) and brings a new level of depth, abstraction and portraiture within the work. Look out for some further coverage of the show and some outdoor work along with the Blek Le Rat & Above show running next door at White Walls.

Check out more pictures after the jump.
