ABOUT:

Ashley Urban’s childhood and adolescence were spent living deeply secluded in Pike national forest of Colorado. Because of this, she had to be creative with how she spent her time. Far removed from the nearest town and a normal social life, her greatest pleasures were spent in solitude, reading, creating art, and connecting with nature, being completely immersed within it for hours on end, every day. She was always intoxicated with its delicacies and dangers. Over time, she learned to relate with flora and fauna on a deeper level than with the people around her. To this day, her work and life are deeply influenced by the natural realm.

Art has always been a way for Ashley to speak without having to say anything. A means of channeling the harshness of life and the losses she’s endured into something stunning. Through her work she continually strives to reflect the immense amount of pain and beauty that surrounds us.

Ashley is a self trained artist who currently lives and creates in downtown Los Angeles, working as a fine artist, freelance illustrator, art writer for 35mm Magazine, vintage clothier, fashion designer and model. She moved to Los Angeles 4 years ago, at first resistant to the culture shock of leaving Colorado, she has since deeply fallen in love with LA. She interned at Corey Helford Gallery as a tear down and installation engineer and gallery assistant from May, 2016 through June, 2017. This opened up her world to learning the business side of the arts, as well as befriending many of the New Contemporary, Pop Surreal, and street artists she’s idolized for many years. Her artistic life continues to bloom forth, being nurtured by the endless opportunities in the Los Angeles art scene.

In the last month she launched a line of hand-made women’s neck scarves and men’s pocket squares, featuring her illustrations printed on various fabrics. Scarves, pocket squares, fine art prints, and original artworks can all be found on her websites. Keep an eye out, as there are many more fashion designs to be released with regularity.
