Russell & Ryan Oliver: Dark yet intelligent experimental painting and collages


Two artists making a name for themselves in Bristol and with a featured interview in the current edition of Crack Magazine are the identical twins Russell and Ryan Oliver. Influenced by death, gang culture and over-sexed advertising, their work explores the sexual language of fashion and sex within corporate advertising. If you're a fan of the gore and grimness of the Chapman Brothers  or the American visual artist Christian Marclay, who creates similar collages out of record sleeves you'll absolutely love the moody suggestive artwork of the Oliver twins. Visit their websites and grab a copy of Crack magazine (can be found in Uncle Sams on Park Street and other independant shops about) to read their compelling and inspirational interview.
