Antonio Russo | Art Collection
Russo Artist Genre
“imagination is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited, imagination is endless.”
Growing up Antonio was consumed by the music industry, drumming in bands, always knowing that music would be a huge part of this future. He has enjoyed a successful career as a music producer, working with many of the biggest names in the industry from Pink to Kanye West. Soon realising he could combine his love for music with his love for art, these two influences have combined in artwork of great visual power and emotional impact.
The most phenomenal aspect of Antonios work, he is a colour blind, yet creates works of pure abstract expressionism, he expresses his emotional response to pieces of music through applying the paint to the canvas; his influences and inspirations range from classic rock to modern day rap.
Highly Collected in the global Art Market
Antonio’s work has been shown at galleries all over the world, most recently at the Catania in Arte Sicily and Miami Art Spectrum USA, and, a triumph, at the Louvre in Paris. His work was also featured in the first ever art exhibition in the stunning, newly renovated Gustave Eiffel Room at the Eiffel Tower.
His status in the USA has long been established but since his UK debut he has been named Best New Artist 2014 by the Fine Art Trade Guild and has won the Effetto Arte Award Winning 2014 and, most recently, the Leone Dei Dogi Award 2015 by the Venice Biennale.
