Russ studied illustration at Leeds Met. University and has worked as a freelance illustrator and animation film maker since graduating. Recently he has made a huge impact on the 'Urban' art scene with his dramatic and stylish images. Russ will be producing a number of original canvases for the show. In the interim the gallery will also release some print editions of his work

"Byroglyphics has found himself in the fortunate position, within the space of a year, of being much in demand and greatly admired. It has been an interesting journey of discovery and self-discovery. The artist launched his career boldly by producing a series of stunning prints that he sold independently through the internet for £15 (including shipping). Very soon, the editions sold out and the Byroglyphics name was out there. From here, he has gone on to produce prints independently and show in several galleries, including his first solo show in Bristol. Byroglyphics (aka Russ Mills) is now an artistic force to contend with - already attracting a loyal following."

Ltd edition of 25
