Sacramento , CA
Norman Ayles (Normaste Art) is a multi-disciplinary artist, including acrylic painting, murals, sign logos, and the art of tattoo. His figurative pop-art style translates especially well to large-scale murals. He has worked with the ARTners Collaborative crew on multiple projects - including Wide Open Walls - and is part of the ZFG crew (Zero Forbidden Goals.). His focus is on bringing more art to the city of Sacramento, working with the community, and providing a platform for other artist to come together to combine art, poetry and music in a healthy, positive, shared space.
Sacramento born and raised, Norm was born into a family - like so many - who struggled with the challenges of drug addiction. Growing up, art was a needed outlet for him, and brought him a sense of peace, healing, and self-expression. Currently he focuses his time and energy on being a full-time artist and father of two. He has exhibited his work in a number of solo and group shows throughout California.
