Contemporary Californian painter Henry Asencio has emerged as one of the most intriguing artists on the world stage. His compositional style refers to the classical ideals of figurative accolades. He is fascinated by the dichotomy between the aggression of his painting technique and the tranquillity of the finished composition saying: “Many of us seek harmony and peace, but along the way we embattle the obstacles of life. My earlier work did not acknowledge this. My current work celebrates it.”
Asencio has been named as ‘Today’s Top Artist’ by the USA association of Art Business News Major Shows for an astonishing four years in a row and his New York exhibitions have sold out every year. He was the first artist to receive both a gold and a silver medal in the prestigious international
Amsterdam Art Competition and he was also chosen finalist in an Artist’s Magazine competition for his work in portraiture.
His highly personal investigations of the female figure are characterised by open brushwork, sweeping colour, bold use of texture and great technical precision; qualities that have earned him an impressive range of international collectors which include George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Ice T and Coco, Anne Heche, Barry Bonds and Billy Crystal.
Asencio’s style has been described as abstract naturalism. He has won a range of awards and accolades and his artwork is sought after internationally with sell out exhibitions all over the world.
