Ashley Longshore delivers exactly what her fans are clamoring for: a look at Ashley's big life, her audacious aphorisms, and of course her sumptuous, glittering art in sublime detail. Ashley Longshore's pop-art paintings are always daring; her art makes noise. On any given day, you may catch her in her New Orleans gallery painting with Blake Lively, talking art and fashion with Dapper Dan in New York, or on a remote island in Hawaii painting.
A prolific artist, she has been compared to Andy Warhol for her passion with pop-culture figures; but it's her infectious personality and humorous real talk that has captured the hearts of and inspired her devoted fans. Ashley's story also peeks at her major blingy collaborations with brands such as Rolex; luxury cosmetics brand Clé de Peau; Veuve Clicquot; Chloé; Mark Cross; and Judith Leiber, to name only a few. Ashley Longshore tells the stories of the self-proclaimed "urban hippie" in glorious color and detail and features her works, collaborations, and her singular and authentic personality.
