Before I even thought about being a graphic designer I always got a huge buzz from street art and graffiti. Over the past 5-6 years art has given me so much inspiration and in the early days my style was very close to the art that I saw. Today I went to check out the awesome work by Newcastle artist Hush at the Opus gallery in Gosforth which inspired me as always. My experience in working with artists (especially urban artists) is that as they mature they move into more contemporary art or in a lot of cases design, however what makes Hush different is that he is a designer that has moved into art.
