Psychedelic Dreamscapes – Allison Torneros (10 paintings)

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Allison Torneros’ paintings is the thought process behind her pieces. Letting the paint do the ‘talking’, she throws around paint and other materials onto the canvas in an unpredictable manner and leaves it to dry overnight.

Born in 1985, Allison Torneros is a Bay Area-born, Los Angeles-based artist and designer who began drawing at age 2, and built her first website at 11. She received her Bachelor’s from UCLA with a degree in Design and Media Arts.
