Urban Geisha

about Hush

Perhaps it seems odd that a casual meeting on the street
could have brought about such change.
But sometimes life is like that isn’t it

Memoirs of a Geisha

He once said that some people think his women are serene, others that they’re scary — but, what is clear is the power of their sensuality. He presents contemporary depictions of traditional portrait and figurative imagery through an inventive mix of seemingly incompatible themes and aesthetics. His street and gallery work offsets graffiti flourishes in futuristic silvers and blacks with a colorful chaotic collage, inspired by layers of flyposting and other urban detritus. Hyper-sexualised Babushkas, classical Sirens, and Japanese Geishas explore a whole new approach to a traditional feminine role.



Born in Newcastle, Hush is originally trained as a graphic designer and illustrator at Newcastle School of Art & Design for 5 years. His love of street art goes back to his youth, when he did a bit of graffiti in his formative years and made posters for rave/dance nights. Now, art practice has taken him around the globe throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States. His immersion in such a diverse range of cultures and environments is evident in his work and his captivating portrayal of the immortal 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.

“I’ve always been interested in how graffiti was being reintroduced and how it was influencing styles and fonts, but never really being accepted as its own art form.
