Peyton Scott Russell. Artwork. Retrospective. 40 Years.

In the Ford Family Gallery
Show Dates: February 2-March 3, 2023

Peyton Scott Russell (Peyton) started creating as a toddler and has exhibited work professionally since 1990. This retrospective exhibition highlights 45 years, featuring work from Peyton’s elementary school years to the present. Being a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1991), Peyton has exhibited work from drawings, paintings, screen prints, collage, sculpture, mix-media, installations, murals, and Graffiti-related crafts.

The aesthetics of Graffiti Art is a medium and genre that would continue to resurface through the years in Peyton’s work. However, graffiti as an art has not been respected by institutions as serious fine art until recently.

This exhibition examines how Graffiti Art has been a genre that followed Peyton and eventually became the one craft that transcended all other media, earning Peyton national and international recognition. This body of work will show the various media, concepts, and ideas Peyton has worked through and continues to examine with the aesthetics of Graffiti Art being at the helm of his creations.
