LUSH targets CCTV in latest sculptures
Everyone’s favourite self-appointed ‘graffiti asshole’ Lush has been targeting CCTV cameras as his ongoing experimentation with sculpture continues. Without a doubt, Lush is one of today’s most interesting writers and possibly one of the only people within the community to be playing on and highlighting the tropes that exist within it.
Over the past few years he has progressed from a graffiti artist creating relatively standard pieces that fully embraced macabre and pornographic elements (all the while with a humorous stance) to an artist who treads the line between street and graffiti artist in a very clever manner. Using the wider cultural vision of street art coupled with the mannerisms and explicitly anti-authority attitude of a graffiti artist, he has kept the offensive & confrontational elements of previous work but now switches between various mediums in order to get his typically humorous messages across.
These sculptures certainly stay true to that ethos, with the subject matter ranging from dead cops, bodily functions and featuring quite a lot of his standard nakedness / paint splatters.
