Hueman Filipino-American, b. 1985
Allison Torneros, known in the art world as “Hueman”, is a multidisciplinary artist based in Oakland, CA. Her distinctly gauzy art style is what she likes to call “etherealism”, a blend of ethereal realism. Whether she is creating delicate visions on canvas, or crushing massive walls with a spray can, she often draws on the human condition to create colorful mash-ups of the abstract and figurative. Hueman's unique freestyle process involves creating tightly refined compositions from a spontaneous beginning of paint splashes, drips, and sprays, and her layered works can be seen on public streets and in galleries worldwide. She balances her time between gallery exhibitions and public mural work while also collaborating with some of the world's top brands that include Adobe, Lyft, Nike, Forever 21, Google, L’Oreal, Sony Music, and many more. Her work has found homes in the collections of Ava Duvernay, Usher, P!nk, and Swizz Beats.
