One of my favorite artist's and friend is having his solo show called Divided Attention opening Saturday, October 23rd at Known Gallery in LA, I highly recommend checking it out, even if just online, more details below....
A self-taught painter and sculptor, PUSH was inspired early on by skateboarding and the burgeoning west coast graffiti scene. He credits his friendship with fellow AWR/MSK crew member SABER as helping to define his path in life as well as shaping his art making work ethic.
In 2007, PUSH’s early work caught the eye of media sponsor, LA Weekly: “Trying to define Push’s work is unfair, and nearly impossible. It’s easier to say it’s like nothing else: informed by postmodern abstract splatter paintings, yet rigid, neon and precise. Introverted and quiet, he’s the thinking man’s graffiti artist.”
After his many years of global graffiti writing invitations and participation in numerous group exhibits, DividedAttention brings together PUSH’s latest paintings, debuting an evolved style and introducing a new, sophisticated color palette. When asked why it took so long for the Seventh Letter’s man of mystery to have his own show, he demurs. “I want to show something that is natural, balanced, and thought out. And timing is everything”
