Cash (Curtis Ashby)
Cash is a young Seattle based urban artist who has been painting steadily for four years now. Cash got his first taste of street art while he was in his senior year of high school after a friend showed him an issue of Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine. Cash studied under Tacoma,WA folk artist, Liza Morado in 2006 and his artistic potential was realized.
Influenced by street artists all across Europe and the U.S., Cash uses spray paint, acrylic, and watercolor to create his works on canvas, paper, and wood. Cash’s works have been displayed publicly in businesses, local galleries, and in private collections. His paintings reflect the textures of the city, as well as the colors and spontaneity found in nature.
