Expressive Contemporary Figure Painter

Learn More About Henry Asencio

Henry Asencio creates expressive abstract figure paintings that are rich in color and texture.  Furthermore, Asencio blends classical painting techniques with contemporary colors and textures when painting his figures. In addition, Asencio enhances each figure by painting an energetic, abstract background.  These backgrounds are full of expressive colors which encapsulate multiple emotions.  Ultimately, Asencio paints each piece to enhance emotion, sensuality, and beauty.

Asencio began his art career by receiving exposure in exhibitions in Germany and Paris.  In addition, he earned gold and silver medals in self-portraiture in oils and acrylic mediums.  These awards gave Asencio the recognition he needed to begin his career.  Soon after this, Asencio’s stunning portraits gave him international recognition and allowed him to excel his art career.

Asencio paints his figures by working with live models and figurative photographs.  He sets the mood of the piece by using a pallet knife to create rich colors and tick textures.  Asencio prefers to use oil because of the richness of color and the ability to manipulate textures.  Furthermore, he will begin a painting with a gesture drawing of the figure, mix rich colors, and applies thick paint on the canvas.  Asencio has created his signature painting style by applying rich oils, thick textures, and stunning skin tones.  Lastly, these paintings can be acquired by contacting
