AsiaHanon.jpeg

Asia Hanon is a Graphite artist based in North Carolina and works primarily in portraiture. Asia's first experience as an artist was when she had won the Adam's Billboard award in the Scholastics Art & Writing awards her senior year of high school. At the time, Asia was very much influenced by the realism movement, in which she realized her ability to capture the human expression/emotion. It was here that Asia realized that she wanted to pursue her career in this field. Asia went on to study Painting at the University of North Carolina At Charlotte, where she is earning her bachelor's in fine arts. It was here that Asia further expanded her knowledge in painting and drawing, where she won the Lucy Brown Winfree purchase award in the 35th Annual McNeese National Works on Paper Exhibition. Her work has also been exhibited at Core New Art Space in their exhibition Surface in/Sight: Printmaking Today. Her paintings and drawings have also been featured in the In Art Gallery 2022 painting exhibition.
