Matryoshka x 3

HushSeptember 2013


Stavanger, Norway

English artist HUSH merges Western graffiti styles and tagging with a more refined Japanese aesthetic, creating a mashup of East-meets-West.

HUSH paid a particularly sensitive tribute to local graffiti artists with his piece in Stavanger. Creating a set of nesting-dolls, HUSH used the negative space of his artwork to create a window which allowed for a dialogue between the graffiti that existed on the wall before he arrived to paint and his own work.
