Ase Selah (Neal Fudge IV), painting through Abstract Expressionism with an influence from the Purism Era, has emerged as a distinctive visualizer in twenty-first century American art. Inspired by his impoverished upbringing in a household of four siblings and a middle-aged single mother, Ase Selah’s life journey as an artist developed its unique path. An unorthodox lifestyle explains Ase Selah’s intense connection to raw emotion which is displayed through relatable pieces filled with heavy compositions, bright streaks, soft shades and uneven tones met with sporadic patterns. Ase Selah’s artistry invites viewers to reflect on aspects of life’s ups and downs through subliminal messages, existing within every painting. His unconventional style has made solid hues, bold lines, and symbolic shapes and phrases, the hallmark of his unparalleled and unique work. His technique of applying multiple layers has led critics unable to describe his work as anything but "beautifully complex". Ase Selah’s work ethic and raw talent are evident in all of his works.
