LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Russ Pope's art draws from the social and political environment surrounding him in his daily life. Pope's inspirations have been skateboarding, music and the creative, interesting people he encounters daily. His bold strokes, finite doodles and striking paintings are comprised of faces, still-life portraits and humorous events. From his early days in Central California, skateboarding, drawing and attending punk shows, to his current life in New England, Russ has processed life and his interactions with his world through the prism of a pen and a paintbrush.
