Lush is lush

It's undeniable that Lush is prolific. I also think he is cool. I believe it's a widely held opinion yet when I declare it publicly there is frequently a strong sentiment in the other direction, like "Lush is a *tool*" or "fuck i *hate* Lush". That he evokes such emotion confirms for me that he is an artist (and is cool). His mediums are Lushness and Controversy. I am still pondering the eternal "what is art?" and I just reckon at this stage that it happens between the creative act and the viewers response. These pictures - I am not even certain are lush as someone has told me he is in LA. I will do a part 2 to this blog complete with links and a range of Lush works, in the meantime, waddya reckon? Is it him? Lush Cat obviously yes but the rest ? Regardless I am loving it!
