Yesterday, we shared with you photos of Hush’s (interviewed) new mural in Los Angeles painted while he was preparing for his solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery. Today, we follow that up with an early look at the new body of work collectively entitled Unseen which feature portraiture of women rendered with his mix of urban-informed techniques and imagery from Eastern influences. He states that “the women are enciphered with street tags and abstractions, appear as graffiti specters, colorful visages of noir street action. I look to take something like tagging that is generally seen as aggressive, ugly and masculine out of context and present it to the viewer as something beautiful.”
The show opens tonight, May 18th, and runs through June 15th.
