Asencio, “The Painted Word”

Artist Henry Asencio Releases a Collection of Paintings Accompanied by Spoken Word Poetry

SAN DIEGO (July 25, 2011) – Exclusive Collections Fine Art Galleries are proud to host artist Henry Asencio for his annual show on the weekend of August 26-28, 2011, in San Diego’s Fashion Valley Shopping Center. Asencio, a graduate of the San Francisco Academy of Art University and nationally acclaimed as “Today’s Top Artist” by Art Business News in 2010, joins the collectors and friends of Exclusive Collections Galleries for an exhibition that combines his powerful visuals with spoken poetry in “The Painted Word”.


I am not a saying;

I am the diction behind it.

I am not a sentence;

I am the brick that builds it.

I am not a book;

I am the quietude of speech.

Take Comfort.

I am your Word;

spoken within the silence of my heart;

and painted by your existence.

I am not another story.
