Born in 1971 in England, Russ Mills is an artist with a complete knowledge and mastery of all arts. After studying Graphic Art and Design with a specialisation in Experimental Film and Animation and working several years as a freelance Illustrator, the English artist has seized the best ingredients of painting, from classics to trendy pop surrealism and basic tools to computing, to reveal a very personal style.
His portraits of sensual young women are a juxtaposition of violent abstraction and quiet femininity. Russ’ use of mixed media creates canvases of tactile texture, a blending of the rough with the delicate. His work proudly shows the inheritance of street art, animation and fine arts, leading to a dynamic modernity and appealing beauty.
