Hush’s art at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA – Nov 25

Street Artist Hush’s latest exhibition at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA represents a great landmark in the artist’s career.

Hush is somewhat of a veteran in the Street Art World. Spending time between the UK, Japan, Europe, Australia and North America, Hush’s monumental rise has lead him to become one of the most collected street artists in the world.

Hush’s art now resembles fine art portraiture; high decorative and with a higher level of finesse. But that doesn’t mean he has lost touch with the street art world; far from it. His murals are ever-present and constantly evolving. Hush’s art prints are gorgeously executed, but done so with a rawness that can only be achieved with years on the street, mastering his style.

Nowadays Hush’s limited edition artwork is often embellished with 22ct Gold and Platinum, multi-layered and finished with a beautiful varnish that plays with the light as it bounces.

Hush’s new body of work at the Corey Helford gallery represents his very best yet. Beautiful compositions of alluring Japanese geishas adorned in wonderful textures and illuminated with precious metals.

True to the title of the exhibition, a new Murakami Octopus character makes it’s debut.

Takashi Murakami became the ambassador of Japanese emerging art, setting up GEISAI in 2001 to help encourage the emergence of Japanese talent. Successes included artists like Chiho Aoshima, Aya Takano and Mr.

Takashi Murakami’s excitement lead to him to pour all of his finances into operating galleries and nurturing the young artists. By his own admission, things got out of hand, and the excitement quickly turned into resentment.

Murakami explains that the exhibition “The Octopus Eats It’s Own Leg” speaks to the “atmosphere of desperation” as Murakami battled the duel roles of artist and mentor to a generation of young artists.
