Allison 'Hueman' Torneros: The Freestyle Artist

Allison Torneros, aka Hueman, is one of those artists I discovered by chance. I was going through Instagram one day and saw her Nike-commissioned portrait of Kobe Bryant, and instantly fell in love with her work. Her art is a colorful mix and mash of the abstract and figurative, the beautiful and grotesque, and that golden moment between sleep and wake.

Allison's paintings on canvas and expansive murals have so much texture and depth. She uses a mix of spray paint and acrylic to create complex, vibrant, yet still delicate bursts of visual beauty. Hueman, a Filipino American resident of California, graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a degree in Design & Media Arts. In 2014, she was named one of LA Weekly's People of the Year and was featured on a limited-edition cover of the issue.

Follow her on Instagram for more visual stimuli.
