Antonio RussoAntonio Russo was born in England in 1965, both parents were Sicilian and he spent his early years there, moving back to England at the age of 13. His family roots in Sicily influenced his taste in art and music bringing a broad spectrum of culture, light, colour and sound which are evident in his work today. For Antonio the link between art and music is intrinsic and the line between the two is blurred, he feels the music and paints his feelings.
“I don’t really know if I have an artist’s statement or style, I don’t really see the need. I love painting to music and I never know what I’m doing until I look at a blank canvas, and at that point the colours, music and inspiration hit me, and it all starts to flow."
