Spotlight on: Alex Russell Flint
Russell Flint specialises in beautifully crafted, representation portraits and narrative works in both oil and charcoal. His timeless paintings of strong, alluring females, placed in intriguing situations or simply posed portraits, showcase his ability to celebrate tradition as well as modern expression and feeling.
Great-grandson of the artist Sir William Russell Flint, Alex has exhibited in solo, joint and group shows in London, Ireland and the United States, as well as taking countless commissions. His artwork has been featured on the front cover of cult-classic novels including Donna Tartt’s ‘The Secret History’, and his French home included in various interior design publications, such as Condé Nast’s ‘The World of Interiors’.
A note from Susie
“The moment I came across Alex’s work I was infatuated. The mood, the intensity and the strength that his portraits conveyed, yet with a romantic and timeless quality. Alex is a truly talented yet private and modest person whose traditional approach to portraiture brings a unique style to the canvas. I have two pieces from him, Magda and Olivia and they are always talked about and really resonate with Romilly Wilde and our ‘Romantic vs Rebellious’ mood. When I first asked whether Alex would be prepared to share ‘Voyeur’ I was so excited as I feel that is captured a stillness and idleness that we should all adopt into our lives, especially now.
Marrying Art to Beauty seems a natural connection plus having a covetable, practical beauty bag to contain all your favourite beauty products is a dream come true. We are very excited and proud to be offering such a unique gift.”
