Russell Powell Interview for Content Magazine

A couple of months ago we had the pleasure of interviewing local artist and art teacher Russell Powell for the upcoming issue of Content Magazine. Russell paints on his hand then stamps it onto a piece of paper. That might not sound impressive until you actually see his beautifully detailed black and white paintings that are painted on an approximately 4”x4” surface that isn’t flat. His paintings take on a global feel often incorporating indigenous people and exotic animals. His portraits also include people who are famous and or have made an important contribution to society.

He is one-of-a-kind in so many ways. Talent only surpassed by humility, a powerful and unique vision on all things and a fully dedicated teacher for young kids. So lucky to have him in our lives!
