Graffiti by Hush: Tags, Kimono & Geisha

This is my second post featuring graffiti by Hush. While Hush’s earlier works focused on imagery of girls from anime and manga, this image has been superseded in his later work by the image of the geisha. Like the anime girl, the geisha is an ideal; the mythical epitome of “oriental beauty” which exists only in the Western imagination.

Hush’s technique has also progressed. While his work still retains the detail and complexity of his collage-like images, his newer work is more painterly. Spray-painted tags are layered against traditional Japanese textile patterns, while a color palette of rich vermilion, turquoise and gold reflects the sumptuousness of embroidered silk.
