California-based artist Henry Asencio is a painter who focuses on the stunning beauty of the female form. He believes in the timeless essence of the human figure and so he creates a variety of classic portraits that feature elegant lines and graceful shapes. Asencio often uses a palette knife to achieve his rich oil paint textures, and the final result is an expressive technique that blends abstraction with modern style.
When speaking about his own unique approach to painting, the artist says that he is most influenced by abstract expressionists. His bio states, "Merging introspection and visual spectacle, Asencio's personal investigations of femininity, spirituality, and abstraction possess the power to transform today's ideals of elegance and contemporary sensuality."
