Allison Tinati, who paints under the moniker ‘Hueman’, grew up drawing and painting in Northern California, and received her diploma in Design and Media Arts from UCLA in 2008.


Whether realising her delicate visions on a canvas or crushing a massive wall with a spray can, she often draws on the human condition to create colourful mash-ups of abstraction and figuration, the beautiful and the grotesque.


Hueman’s unique freestyle process involves creating tightly refined compositions from a spontaneous beginning of splashes, drips and sprays. Through this method, she is interested in creating movement and dimension on flat, two-dimensional surfaces. Her works are visible on public walls and in galleries all over the world.
