Ashley Longshore has been dubbed Andrea Warhol, the modern day Andy. Inspired by American consumerism, the New Orleans based pop artist adorns iconic and historical figures in designer wares and glamorous duds, but not without her own quirky and humorous twist. I mean, Honest Abe in Gucci? Amazing. Her fearless use of color and textures, like resin and glitter over acrylic on canvas, creates a jovial mood that’s endearing and contagious. “I want to live in a world of laughter, color, sparkle and shine,” Ashley said. “Life is too short to not spend most of the day with a smile.” We couldn’t agree more.
