Live Art Pop-Up at Anthropologie, Chelsea Market; London Audrey by Ashley Longshore 

Tucked in an aromatic back corner, world renowned painter Ashley Longshore blends acrylics as comfortably as her paintings blend into the post-modernist milieu of Anthropologie, Chelsea Market. Spanning the length of an entire sunset, Longshore paints in-store, under the watchful eye of an enquiring public. Works from her signature Audrey Hepburn series serve as a suitable backdrop to the collection of travel bags, pouches and hat boxes that bear their likeness.     

New York Snowglobe Aubrey and London Aubrey by Sarah Ashley Longshore

Pop-art with a splash of tongue-in-cheek humor summarizes the work of New-Orleans native Sarah Ashley Longshore. Her continuing partnership with Anthropologie is wholly representative of a stylistic intuition inspired by both everyday life and global travels. The Audrey series imagery channels the timeless beauty of women through one of Longshore's premier muses. Though perhaps lesser known to the general public, Longshore caters to a long list of celebrity clientele (the likes of Blake Lively, Selma Hayek, and a trail of billionaires and hedge fund gurus) poking fun at the fashion world, while being fully stimulated by it.
