Carlo Russo, 1976 | Still life / Figurative painter





Carlo Russo was born in Philadelphia PA. He is currently based in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia, where he maintains his studio and teaches painting and drawing in addition to creating his newest works. Carlo graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2004 where he focused his studies in the  methods and practices of traditional realism. Since his graduation, he has been a full-time artist and has exhibited his works in numerous galleries across the United States.







His galleries include F.A.N. Gallery in Philadelphia PA, Anderson Gallery in St. Simon's Island GA  and Sloane Merrill Gallery in Boston MA.  While known primarily for his mastery in still life painting, he is accomplished in figurative and landscape painting as well. Carlo works in the natural northern light that fills his studio. He is intent on creating beautiful works which capture the myriad textures, colors and forms we find all around us.
