Ashley Longshore — the artist known for her pop paintings of fashion icons from Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld to Kate Moss — told us at a Surf Lodge dinner in her honor with artist Brandon Boyd during Art Basel Miami of her start: “I was broke as hell, and was trying to understand the fashion world, so poking fun at it and seeing the humor of it and then making money is what got me into it, where I can actually afford this stuff. Now I realize how much fun this is.”
Her work is collected by Blake Lively and Penelope Cruz, among other celebrities. She added, “Things are depressing as hell out there politically, and in so many ways and I want to celebrate my life.”
Also at the bash were Jayma Cardoso, Scott Lipps and Ally Hilfiger.
