Russ’s work, in whatever form it takes, has always held a delicate reflection of his surroundings. Being influenced by a continually evolving environment, he utilises mixed media to communicate identity in flux.
Russ began his artistic life as a sculptor, carving smooth body lines out of stone. His need for artistic expression saw him look to oil and canvas, creating strong abstract images for private commission.
During the 1980’s he was headhunted by a large UK publishing house to head their creative department. During this time, he employed his considerable graphic design and photographic skills with immeasurable success, constructing powerful images of international celebrities and iconic architecture.
It was at this time that he became seduced by the mystery and symbolic strength of the photographic image. Coupled with a desire to unravel the secrets of form and shape, he began to concentrate on individual and architectural portraiture. This led him into working full time as a image-maker in the advertising industry and being represented by the world’s largest picture agency, Getty.
With a breadth of experience and a depth of passion for his work, Russ creates hybrid images with impact. He continues to work in the commercial field whilst developing highly personalised images on commission for various clients abroad and in his new home, Dubai.
