About The Artist
Los Angeles based artist, Ash Beheshti, has had the good fortune of creating mixed media art for the last three decades. Originally a furniture builder and interior designer, Ash has brought together his years of expertise in visual design with his imaginative conceptual ideas to create canvases that visually engage and speak to their viewers. His art communicates with vibrant colors, figurative shapes and thought-provoking ideas.
To bring these canvases to life, Ash combines a multitude of complimentary mediums and textures. Hand-painted with acrylic paint over a carefully selected layer of collage, silk-screen, and printmaking, the paintings take their final shape once all the elements have been meticulously applied. Vintage sheet music, retro magazine ads, original photography, old newspapers, graphic book and album covers make up the artist's favorite background elements.
For Ash, inspiration comes from his love of photography, music, movies, and all things vintage. As a self-taught artist, he has spent years honing his skills and developing a unique style that best represents his vision. From paintings that portray a quirky and playful take on our pop culture to poetic images that capture and tell a human story, Ash's art aspires to stimulate the viewer's eye as well as their mind.
