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. 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. Fueled by a desire to create, Ash began experimenting, using anything she could find. She would tear apart bushel baskets at her father's fruit stand and use those to paint on. Anything and everything around her she would turn into works of art.
This 24" by 18" colorful mixed-media artwork is wired and ready to hang. The artist uses both vibrant colors and thick brushstrokes of bright and bold colors. The sides of this unique artwork are painted black. It does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles delivery.

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 even by taking risks. She is also moved by the process of change, individuals who are doing kind things for others, and hearing about miraculous stories of the past and present. 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.
