The Short

San Francisco Bay area bred, Los Angeles-based. I have been creating art of all kinds for as long as I can remember. I prefer painting outdoors.  

The Long

Allison Torneros, aka HUEMAN, is a hybrid lowbrow artist with fine-art painterly skills, who brings a femininity to a movement that at times can be juxtaposed to the gracefulness of her work. In the studio, she presses her striking, freestyle vision to canvas, drawing on the human condition to create impressive mash-ups of the beautiful and grotesque, abstract and figurative and ordered and chaotic. Outside, when crushing walls, shoulder-to-shoulder with street art legends, she channels her alter-ego, Hueman, to break out of her creative shell along with the boxed boundaries of the canvas. In giving in to the call of freedom, Hueman says, “When I dare to go outside of my comfort zone I feel more human, and I hope to inspire others to do the same.”
