About

Ash Almonte is a contemporary abstract painter, born in Abilene, Texas in 1983. Fast gaining nationwide attention for her unique and fresh style, Ash Almonte uses references to abstract expressionism and combines it with a layered figurative aesthetic. In her eyes, it is more about the execution than the final product; she enjoys the process of making art more than the product itself.

This one-of-a-kind 48 inch tall by 36 inch wide blue and purple mixed-media painting is wired and ready to hang. The artist combines thick brushstrokes of bright and bold colors with resin and pen ink to create texture, depth and interest. The sides of this unique artwork are painted as a continuation of the front. It does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.

Fueled by a desire to create, Ash began experimenting, using anything she could find to turn into a spontaneous work of art.
After high school, Ash went on to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts from McMurry University in Abilene, where she began to perfect her unique style, working mainly with mixed media, including enamel, oil, acrylic and graphite.

She is primarily inspired by beautiful color, incredible music, outrageous fashion, raw and loud works of art, and likes to take risks while transforming her paintings into stories. She is moved by the process of change, individuals who are doing kind things for others, and hearing about miraculous stories of the past and present. She expresses her compassion in playful compositions of acrylic paint, mixed media and resin on canvas, balancing organic shapes, while often masterfully incorporating delicate ink drawings. In essence, Ash is moved by life and inspired by every minute of it. Her works are displayed in many private and corporate collections throughout the US.
