Born and raised on Long Island, Alisha Anglin currently lives and works as a full-time Abstract Artist in New York. She is self-taught and started painting at the young age of 10. For her, art is a way of living and a means through which she makes sense of the chaotic events in life. Anglin's bold abstract compositions are created in expressionist, cubist, and gestural styles. She paints intuitively using acrylics on canvas and has an extensive portfolio of artwork in various styles. Known for her chaotic style of painting, the beauty of imperfection is explored through applying geometric and wild patterns to deliberately distorted forms. She paints intuitively using acrylics on canvas in prismatic and electrifying colors. The evocative effects of her paintings will vary depending on the interests and experiences as a collaboration Is established between the viewer and Artist as the viewer enters the abstract world of each painting.
Alisha has been in numerous exhibitions and is an American Artist with Singulart which is based in Paris, France. In November 2019, she was invited to partner with Wayfair as one of the first female Artists to produce her art on home décor for sale on Wayfair.com. In 2019, Alisha taught an ornament painting class at Moya Elementary School for 4th graders in Phoenix. Upon completion of the class, she donated 30 art kits with canvases for the holidays to students who come from low-income homes.
In 2021 she taught a MasterClass for the Madison School District of 6000 students, to bring creativity and to help the students express themselves during a very crucial time with virtual/hybrid learning due to Covid. She served as a board member for the The Madison Education Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to enriching the quality of education of every child who attends Madison Public Schools by providing innovative, hands-on programs in music and the arts.
