He began creating graffiti art in the early 1990's and has gained a reputation for his humorous, irreverent and often controversial street art, which has appeared on walls, bridges and public spaces around the world. His paintings are characterised by his use of bold, bright colours, and his ability to create intricate and highly detailed images using spray paint. The artists' work often incorporates political, social and pop culture references, drawing on internet meme culture and offering commentary on numerous public figures with celebrity status. He has also been known to use parody and the appropriation of renowned artworks and iconic images.
Lush has exhibited his work in galleries around the world, including presentations in New York, London, Tokyo and Melbourne. In addition to street art, he has created a range of limited edition prints, clothing, and other merchandise. Despite his success as an artist and his growing international profile, Lush remains something of an enigma, choosing to maintain his anonymity and avoiding media attention wherever possible. His work continues to captivate audiences around the world, and his influence on the art world is undeniable.
