In her street art and gallery work, Hueman (the alias of Allison Torneros) captures the spontaneous spirit of both graffiti and abstract expressionism. She experiments spray paint and acrylics, layering so much paint onto her canvases that it morphs into an oil slick-like rainbow of shades. The up-and-coming artist has spent the past year taking on major projects — her largest mural to date at San Francisco's Ian Ross Gallery, commissions for the likes of Nike and P. Diddy and a recent cover feature for LA Weekly's People Issue. Tonight, June 5, she will debut her latest body of paintings for "Between the Lines," her solo show at Project Gallery in Hollywood. According to Hueman, the title alludes to the ways her abstract work compels viewers to deduce their own meanings from the imagery. There will be a talk with Hueman and art critic Shana Nys Dambrot on June 21 at the gallery for those curious to learn more about the artist.
