Sarah Ashley Longshore (popularly known as Ashley Longshore) is a Louisiana-based painter, gallery owner, and entrepreneur. She is the owner of the Longshore Studio Gallery, located on Magazine Street in New Orleans. Longshore's art focuses on pop culture, Hollywood glamour, and American consumerism and has been compared to the artwork of Andy Warhol.
I am completely in love with Ashley Longshore. Just when i thought pop art was gone Ashley Longshore comes forward like the sun after a dark storm. The glitz and the glam are all so pop that my eyeballs are so happy when I see her art. She truly is a pop art hero.
When A and I went to New Orleans last year we walked down Magazine street and into Ashley Longshore's world. Her studio gallery is truly something to behold. I can remember the glitter on the front steps shining as if I was walking through the pearly gates of heaven.
I love many of her art works, including a huge sculpture of a roll of hundred dollar bills and a painted portrait of lil Wayne. But my favorite of all time is Longshore's portrait of Jesus Christ. With his designer glasses he has very chic disposition. In addition Jesus also has a sparkler and an adorable baby unicorn! I can't help but feel very amazed by the beauty and talent of the amazing Ashley Longshore. <3
