"I started drawing as a little guy and was told that I was good at it. Every kid is told that, but I believed it and took it to heart. My uncle was a painter and I saw his work around my grandparents house. Like most kids I think, I was also inspired by comic book art and Doctor Seuss."
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 characterized by faces, still lifes and humorous events. From the 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.
