Hueman [ OAKLAND, CA, USA ]all artists
Allison Torneros AKA…
Hueman, grew up drawing and painting in Northern California. Following this passion she studied design and media arts at UCLA and worked as a graphic designer before devoting her career full time to being an artist. Hueman describes her work as finding the perfect balance between abstract/figurative and beautiful/grosteque. There is an ethereal quality that comes through her work which she describes as waking up from a dream, where everything is little cloudy but you remember bits of color and mood.
Hueman’s mural in the new Wynwood Walls Garden elicits this same quality. The mural, which features faces of a man and a woman in intimate conversation, is also anamorphic, where in order to the full picture, you need to stand a few feet back and view it from a certain angle. Hueman spray painted a triangle on the pavement so that visitors know where to stand it order to properly see the mural.
