About the artist - Dean Russell is a Fellow of the RSA, and a seasoned and accomplished portrait and abstract artist. Russell has produced commissioned pieces and art prints for over 20 years.

Russell has painted and drawn many commissioned pieces, primarily focused upon personally meaningful portraits. His own private portfolio includes his series of abstracts, which are based upon the themes of community, science and reflection.

Russell’s abstract paintings (usually Acrylic on Canvas) include many examples of experimentation with metals and texture to investigate the relationship between light, colour and shape.

Most recently, Russell has focused his efforts upon political portraiture. Most recently Russell painted a portrait of Emmeline Pankhurst and Prime Minister Theresa May to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s Vote commissioned by the Conservative Women’s Organisation. Russell’s portrait of the Theresa May was also signed by her.

Russell’s current British Leaders series also includes portraits of Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Margaret Thatcher, which were subsequently made available as a series of limited edition prints.

The prints were signed by prominent political figures including Prime Minister Rt Hon David Cameron MP, Sir John Major KG CH PC and Rt Hon Sir Nicholas Soames MP.
