DaShon Aubrey. Hill (American, b. 1998) is a Contemporary visual artist who produces paintings, drawings, and prints. His works are reactions to every day news/media, conversation, emotion, and just about every other thing a person may have to react to— from social injustice to personal constraint to race to sexuality and self-pity.
Attending Thiel College to study Biology, Aubrey. Hill quickly found himself, as a writer, struggling to express with just word; written word per say, and quickly turned to dropping out. Shortly after, he found himself interested in visual arts, studying artists like George Condo, Arshile Gorky, and de Kooning. His biggest influences, despite them being musical artists, are Frank Ocean & Kendrick Lamar— feeling that their words are visual artworks in themselves.
His works often resemble messiness and always seem to be disjointed, which is how he views the world we live in— with our everyday realities being tainted by toxic media outlets & placement of powers. He feels that these creations convey the raw emotion felt through his personal spiritual journey he coins “emotional abstraction”. He feels these works are produced through him by the higher powers of the universe.
Aubrey. Hill was born, raised, and currently resides in Rochester, New York.
