Russ Pope

Birthdate:
Jan 01, 1970

Russ’ paintings are a collision of motion and color. In Orange County, his favorite part of life is being outside with his family and spending late, lonely nights in his dirty, junk-filled studio, gaining inspiration from new wave, old punk, and even older blues and jazz records. Art keeps Russ sane while juggling work within the skateboard industry, an overly active family, and gallery show deadlines. We don’t know how he does it, but he seems to do it with ease.
