Meet Ashley Metro of Abstract Ideology in Beverly Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Metro.

Ashley, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I recently moved to Los Angeles about five months ago from Austin, Texas to pursue dreams of becoming an artist. Ive been creating art ever since I could make a mark on paper. Throughout my life, I have expressed myself in many different forms of media it wasn’t until recently that I started painting murals starting on photo paper for photo shoots and events and being translated to walls.

Has it been a smooth road?
Deciding to become an artist has been one of the most risky decisions I have made in my life, my parents have always seen it as a hobby until recently when I emphasized my devotion. I still struggle everyday to be able to follow my dream while living in Los Angeles the city of starving artists. The path I chose is something that is completely dependent on my competency and creating my own future by thinking outside of the box. Right now, every day is like a test to see how much I will sacrifice to achieve my dreams, and honestly I’ve never felt more fulfilled in my life.

What else should our readers know?
I am a freelance artist that specializes in larger pieces and detailed line work that tells a story.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I think that Los Angeles is a great place to start as an artist, there is a powerful community of creatives and passionate individuals.
