Read about Russ's last show in May 2007, visit Portsmouth Herald Spotlight.

Russell Aharonian's art is a form inspired over a 30-year period -- originally by the masters Bosch, Breughel and Van Eyck, as were other surrealists -- and by the brilliant language of the abstract-expressionists -- but mostly by life itself: the passions, the sensations, the mysteries, and the humor of the human condition.

Russ works with the spontaneity of digital graphics, the sensuality of oil and acrylic painting and the simplicity of sculpture... and weaves his colorful imprint into biomorphic expressions. Russ is available for abstract family and individual portraits. He also creates artwork for motorcycles and helmets.
