Whether creating delicate visions on canvas, or crushing massive walls with a spray can, she often draws on the human condition to create colorful mash-ups of the abstract and figurative; the beautiful and grotesque.
THE ARTISTS: Hueman grew up drawing and painting in the East Bay. She received her degree in design and media arts from University California, Los Angeles. Hueman's unique freestyle process involves creating tightly refined compositions from a spontaneous beginning of paint splashes, drips, and sprays. Through this method she is interested in creating tactile dimension and motion on flat, two-dimensional surfaces. Companies such as Nike, L’Oreal, Universal Pictures, Lionsgate Films, and MTV have all tapped Hueman for her unique bold-but-delicate style. Her layered works can be seen on public walls and in galleries worldwide.
THE ART: 130’ x 30’ mural of red lettuces in The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at Copia vegetable garden.
THE STORY: “The red lettuce, in particular, reminded me of flowers and are featured most prominently in the piece. The entire color palette is pulled from the greens in the garden, the red lettuce, the stones on the building, and the blue Napa sky.”
THE PLACE: 500 1st Street, The CIA at Copia
