Somewhere between realism and abstract coloring lies the brilliant technique that is so unique to Dean Russo. Vivid color and symbolic texture give way to intense expressions. Dean’s urban surroundings reveal influential elements of graffiti and street art that bring emotion and authenticity to his work.
Dean’s work was on display recently at the Mutt Show in Brooklyn, NY and we had a chance to learn more about this uniquely talented artist.Dean got his start when he was asked to participate in a fund raiser for shelter pets in NYC, His first dog portrait was of a homeless labrador he named “Labradopt”. This philanthropic artist has donated works of art and funding to numerous animal shelters across the country.
