lushsux is Australia’s most prolific street artist and the world’s first official meme artist and founder of the meme movement, an undeniable force within today’s internet culture. Based in Melbourne, lushsux’s iconic works can be found on walls, buildings and subway stations across the world. Through his practice, lushsux has pushed graffiti and street art beyond its limits. His work has garnered the attention of many, including famed street artist Banksy, who has collaborated with lushsux on multiple occasions. His artwork, heavily influenced by meme culture and principles of virality, is witty, satirical, raw and thought provoking.
The 8 by lushsux, curated by 888
For this series, lushsux has joined forces with collector 888 to present an iconic portrait series of society’s most impactful figures.
“The angel 888 came to me with a prophecy, the vision was to spend 8 whole days in VR painting 8 figures from the crypto slash NFT space. My first all digital piece of artwork ever to be released as an NFT. Each portrait is someone I consider interesting or a leading figure within this whole new world for a lot of us.
Mid way through painting I started to feel like I could see pixelation in real life. I would walk around outside when I had the VR headset off half worried I’d smash my knees into a desk at some point because I didn’t have the guardian boundary setup right. Towards the end of the creation it felt like the rubicon had been crossed into a cyberpunk future of sorts after spray painting in real life for 21 years.“
Patrick Mahomes is an American football quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.
