Geishas and Graffiti

HUSH is a UK-based street artist. He has a San Fransisco show coming up in November.

Hush is stimulated, influenced and driven by his cross cultural experiences. Having originally trained as a graphic designer and illustrator for 5 years at Newcastle School of Art and Design, his work has taken him across Europe and Asia, whilst simultaneously developing his prominence as a contemporary artist. Hush now resides in the UK but exhibits prolifically across the globe, with shows in London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Newcastle.Opus Underground. Read full article here.

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
