Mixed Media 

Montreal artist Angelo David Russo aims to develop an approach to modern portraiture that is collaborative and goes beyond traditional ideas of the portrait by creating textured and sculptural mixed media paintings with surrealist, cubist and street art influences.  Mentored by Leopold Plotek at Concordia University, it was in 2012 that Russo developed his signature style by using collage and tape-resist techniques which reflect the artists’ process of discovery of self and identity. 

Russo explores themes of the human psyche, while continuously experimenting with various techniques and materials. He is currently working on The Four Question Project, a conceptual art project composed of a series of paintings inspired by conversations with strangers.
