It looks like the newly married Hush (interviewed) is hard at work on a new body of work for presumably an upcoming show. “Distant Portraits” will series of large paintings looks to be a continuation of his more mature and realism centered work which started with his show in SF last May.

Completing a trio of great shows (along with ABOVE and Blek le Rat) on a great art weekend for SF was Hush’s (interviewed) “Passing Through” at the Shooting Gallery. In somewhat of a departure from previous work as hinted by our studio visit, the Newcastle-based artist, known for his anime influenced imagery, has been experimenting with a more realistic form with some great results, but as you can see from the triptych above, he isn’t opposed to mixing the old with the new. More opening […]
AM went along to Opus Art’s opening of group show “Fresh Cream 2” (previewed) at its Newcastle gallery last week to check out the collective wares of Lex Thomas, Hush, Ghost of a Dream, Charlotte Bracegirdle, Alexandra McLain, Hector de Gregorio, Karl de Vroomen and Teresa Duck. The show brought together a great level of variance in the outputs, mediums and techniques used by the artists involved. Read on for our take on the show, as well as our pictures from the opening after the […]
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 […]
Opus Art in Newcastle opens the second of it’s “Fresh Cream” group shows this Thursday, and we can share with you an image from each of the exciting group of young artists involved. Some names may be familiar to our readers already, such as North-East native Hush (interviewed), and London-based Lex Thomas, who’s small but beautifully rendered classically inspired work intertwined with her pixelated backgrounds we recently saw with Opus at the Scope Fair in Miami during Basel week. Other artists showing in “Fresh Cream […]
San Francisco is going to get another taste of Hush (interviewed) when his show at Shooting Gallery opens up May 1st. The latest solo “Passing Through” from the UK urban artist looks to be very sharp as we’ve seen some new direction with his latest “Looking West” style geisha that we showed you (here & here). Seen above is another new twist on his classic angel character called “Modern Angel” – looks a little edgier with a dissected feel… Check out the print (to be […]
A few weeks ago we previewed Hush (interviewed) working on a new type of Geisha. One that was more detailed and more realistic. It looks like he’s out working on a larger version as a mural. Very interesting… Check out the in progress shots after the jump.
The worlds of art and fashion design often collide, and it seems that Dan Baldwin’s (interviewed) multi-layered textures are soon to make it onto the clothing racks of London’s well-heeled fashionistas. Dan is no stranger to working in different mediums, and we think that his art fits pretty well on these silk linings and fabrics used in collaboration with British fashion designer Sara Berman on her upcoming 2010 autumn collection. Speaking of Baldwin’s artistic collaborations, Dan and Hush (interviewed) just released two super-limited edition prints from the recent […]
Armory Week is just around the corner and we have a little peek of what’s coming for the Scope Art Fair in NYC. Hush (interviewed) will be premiering a new Geisha painting with Opus Art and it looks rad. Usually we see him utilizing a manga-esque girl, but this time Hush switches it up with a more realistic approach to his signature style. More after the jump.
As we mentioned recently in our dual interview with Hush and Dan Baldwin, their collaborative pieces were part of a group show “Don’t Believe the Type” that opened several nights ago at Zero Cool Gallery. Also on display were works from artists like Asbestos, Copyright, Ben Frost, Meggs, Pure Evil, T.WAT and many more. Take a look at all the pics after the jump…
