About Russell Powell
Russell Powell’s method of hand stamping is to create a portrait on his hand and then transfer the image to paper. Hand stamping, which took over two and half years to refine, utilizes both color and black and white ink. Although each portrait is created on a raised surface, each piece is incredibly detailed.
Most recently, Russell was proud to have a spread in Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odd is Art book. In conjunction with the book launch, Ripley's commissioned a special piece featuring the faces of 16 historic guitarists in the shape of a guitar. Russell was also featured on the cover of Content Magazine.
