New Orleans-based mixed-media artist, Ashley Longshore, has been compared to a young, feminist Andy Warhol for her obsession with pop culture figures and brands. From George Washington on a Supreme hoodie to Kate Moss as a nun, Longshore’s paintings, focusing on pop culture, Hollywood glamour, and American consumerism, are never shy of daring – her art makes noise. Dubbed by The New York Times as “Fashion’s Latest Art Darling,” she has emblazoned the path for pop art and fashion to coexist.
