Shout out for Allison Torneros a.k.a Hueman, one of the top female street artists. She has a high position in the mostly by male represented street art scene. The Filipino-American is based in Oakland, California.
Her way of spraying is smooth and precise while she’s moving her entire body, making her look the ultimate spray ballerina. Observing her beauty against the paint splashes and colors dripping on her murals brings a sensation of energy and the taste of the most exotic sweetest fruits. Her name “Hueman" comes after realizing the power of painting big murals and the feeling that it brings you: the freedom of expression, being outside, connecting, the freedom to move your way, to feel alive, to be a human.
