Hair, Humor & The Absurd With Regan Russell
Homegrown Artist From A Homegrown City
Did you ever think that Ice Cube would be chillin’ with Kermit the Frog, or Snoop D.O. Double G would be flipping burgers at the local In-N-Out? We definitely didn’t, but San Diego Artist Regan Russell did. Drawing from nostalgic pop culture, celebrity, and diverse notions of identity, his art playfully pokes fun at the absurdity of the world around us.
Woven into many forms, his multidisciplinary efforts extend from illustration, digital art and mixed media, to full-scale murals and ACTUAL PORTALS.
He even started his own mural project, Yardwork SD, which brings artists of different backgrounds, places, cultures and disciplines to his own backyard. Here they are pampered and cared for as an artist should be, while creating full-scale, free flowing murals, unencumbered by outside influences or interests.
Perhaps his long hair complements the absurdity of it all, and perhaps that is why we hit it off so smashingly on Let It Ride; but certainly, you should listen.
