Hailing from the streets of Newcastle, UK artist Hush (interviewed) opened his show “Hymn of Beauty” at Carmichael Gallery last night.Â From a stunningly textured mural to the hand-finished touches that made certain paintings overlap onto the wall, the presentation was top-notch.Â Although he maintained his anonymity for photos (above), Hush was more than happy to engage fans in conversation and to discuss his work.Â We especially liked the poem he painted on one of the walls from Charles Baudelaire that was used as the title of the show.Â He then faded it and used it as the backdrop for one wall of paintings.Â Take a look at this as well as many more photos after the jump, but first enjoy the short video we took below.
We have a signed show card from Hush to giveaway to our readers (seen below). Please leave a comment before March 10th noon (PST) to be eligible. Also exhibiting was Felipe “Flip” Yung. Take a look at all the images in the gallery below.
