BYROGLYPHICS aka Russ Mills is riding high and has an enormous following. Describing his work as ‘Kitchen Sink Surrealism’ he has, for a long while, been quietly obsessed with Japanese pop culture, especially the Harajuku phenomenon.
‘I love the way that every piece of popular culture from the recent past is smashed together into a garish soup and regurgitated into real life with absolutely no boundaries’
His hybrid of traditional media and digital imaging, focusing on human idiosyncrasies both physical and emotional result in distorted forms both subtle and extreme.
Russ’s recent work has taken a monumental leap forward in both technique and subject matter. An extraordinary body of work is emerging displaying a kaliedoscopic range of drawing and painting skills combined with collage and mixed media in a totally homogenised way.
