Abe. For GUCCI. Seriously, I could not love these more! I’m not sure if I could rock those diamond encrusted rose-colored glasses, but Jesus is doing a fabulous job… not to mention Mark Twain and his fashion-forward flowered jacket. This is the crazy, hilarious, and insanely colorful work of New Orleans based artist Ashley Longshore. Here are Ashley’s words about her work:
“My paintings are representative of the world I see around me. I am inspired by pop culture and things that I find intriguing.I really like to combine the use of words and images in an unexpected way to create a smart, colorful bold statement.Most importantly my love of color is what really makes my artwork “pop”. My paintings are statement pieces that are a reflection of the experiences I have in my life.”
Clearly, I need to experience some of Ashley’s life! Mardi Gras, anyone? ps. Keep your eyes open for the first issue of Create Magazine… one of these fellas is on the cover!
