My Bio
Hi I'm Allison Torneros. I'm an artist/designer based in Los Angeles. To learn more about my work, please visit my site: www.allisontorneros.com

About my creative process:
These 'dreamscapes' are an exploration in human psychology and behavior. I take a reactive approach to the creative process by allowing the medium to do the 'talking': by throwing around paint in an unpredictable manner and leaving it to dry overnight, I later begin drawing based on what I interpret from the random composition, similar to reading a Rorschach inkblot test. I am fascinated with why people do the things they do, and this process is my own way of gaining understanding. My recent work is heavily influenced by life in Los Angeles, a town where dreams are chased, fantasies are sold, 'self' can be redefined a hundred times over, and fame is monetized. While many people carefully construct their dream selves with each online status update or cut of a surgeon's knife, I have built a colorful, moody psychedelic world where these fantasies roam freely. My compositions are created through a variety of media: acrylic, oil, spraypaint, graphite, collage, Photoshop, and Illustrator, and my rough style and bold textures stem from my childhood interests in graffiti art and animation.

Current Residence: Los Angeles
