Words by MPDClick’s Graphics Trend Researcher.
East meets west in this incredible fusion of graffiti and illustration. Renowned street artist HUSH has a new collection being exhibited at the 941 Geary in San Francisco, which features a collection of his incredible work.
Although it has the distinct influence of tagging throughout, the layered textures and brightly coloured compositions create an image with immediate and powerful visual impact.
Hush uses a range of techniques including screen printing, spray painting and collage to create mesmerising floral and geometric patterns that almost recreate a pastiche of delicately decorated porcelain. This original approach to the art form is gaining a lot of recognition, and the style is certain to be replicated.
The concept of beautifying the street art format fits perfectly with MPDClick’s emerging autumn/winter 13-14 trend Expression.
