Ben Russel is a Full-Time, Freelance Artist since 2011. A Graduate of San Jose State, in Film and Studio Art. He has performed live painting shows in front of crowds, exhibited at Comic Book and Horror Conventions, and has had paintings featured at Art Galleries in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
His portfolio contains a wide range of work, from realism portraits of his fans across the globe, to fully colored compositions of tattooed pin-ups, to expressionistic oil paintings.
