ACHICA > Russell Harris
Inspired by the father of Spin-Art, Eugene R. Pera (the first known professional artist to use the technique), and more recently Damien Hirst, Russell Harris decided the time was right to let out his inner Jackson Pollock. Russell has perfected a technique using household gloss that enables him to spin large (up to 2mx2m), deep-framed canvases at varying speeds. Inspired by classic album tracks by the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, he has produced a large body of pop art from his small studio in Manchester. The results have been well received by the art community and Russell is now represented by a number of galleries. Each unique painting is signed. Some have been spun as part of a series, whilst others are meant for individual display.
