Biography / Hueman

Allison Torneros, better known as Hueman, is an extraordinary Filipino American graffiti artist and painter. Based in Oakland, she is best known for her Nike commissioned portrait of Kobe Bryan, her freestyle, an outstanding mural installation set on almost 500m2 and many more as well as her signature style, know to include a lot of bright colored, abstract portraits. Hueman’s works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

In 2008 Hueman graduated from the University of California Los Angeles with a degree in Design & Media Arts. She started painting under this pseudonym after letting go of everything that was holding her back. Once she started creating mural artwork, she felt so alive; she felt human and created her signature ‘Hueman’. Her artwork is often connected with ‘free association’ maybe because her drawings are abstract, without any fixed idea until it becomes the result she aspires. After LA lifted its street art ban, Hueman was amongst the first artist to create a mural. She was named one of LA Weekly’s People of the Year featuring a limited edition cover oft he 2014th May issue. Furthermore with Daniela Rocha, they founded Wander and Wayfare, featuring murals and curating shows. She has participated in many solo and group exhibitions always conveying a message of freedom.
