Lauren Asta is an artist specializing in illustration, doodle art, street art and murals. Her murals are created free hand without any aid of a sketch, projector, or traced outline.

"It is my goal to convey information, light or heavy with content, in an attractive & animated way. Creating public artwork allows me to visually stimulate an audience, and if I’m lucky, inspire them with my cast of characters doing what they do best... being humorous about the human experience."
