New Orleans, LA

From lines of glitter cocaine to Jesus surrounded by Louis Vuitton to Kate Moss dressed as a nun, Ashley Longshore’s pop art is never shy of daring. Her art makes noise. Both Town & Country Magazine and The New York Post have compared Ashley, a prolific artist at a pivotal moment in her career to Andy Warhol, noting the similarity in their obsession with pop culture icons and current brands. Ashley’s vibrant personality and bold artwork has been featured in major publications in the United States and abroad including; Vogue, Elle, Town and Country, Details, Harper’s Bazaar Singapore, and French GQ among others. Her work, which has been described by client, friend and collaborator, Blake Lively as “Elegant yet Rebellious”, is a testament to her vivacious spirit. Dubbed by Elle Magazine as “New Orleans’ Most Bad Ass Artist”, her over the top personality has earned her quite the reputation on social media. Touted by Fast Company Magazine as one of their “Most Creative People” and recognized by Forbes as one of the “Leading Business Women in the South”, Ashley’s non-traditional approach to marketing her work, represents a new wave in an industry that is undergoing its own digital revolution.
