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.
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.
Almonte 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 and mixed media on paper, 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 represented by Artplex Gallery Los Angeles and displayed in many private and corporate collections throughout the US.
