Trained as a 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. Hush’s 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.

British artist 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 and shows 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), Huck magazine, Art Monthly and The Independent newspaper, where he was recognised in their list of the 'Top 20 Up and Coming Artists'.

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