David Anson Russo is recognized as one of the world's premier interactive artists. An innovator for over 35 years, his newest artistic brand What a Great Life is now captivating audiences everywhere.
Russo captured the professional creative community's attention in the 1990s with his dramatic maze designs, resulting in 30 licensing deals, an 11-book contract with Simon & Schuster and a QVCappearance. His Absolute Amazement ad was one of the most popular in the Absolut Vodka series, followed by Mad Magazine commissioning him to create a portrait of Alfred E. Newman for their coveted 1993 Collector's Edition cover.
Television was a natural segue for Russo, who has helped create over 40 new television properties. These include Combat Missions (Mark Burnett Productions/USA Network), Magic Johnson's Who's Got Game (MTV) and Paula Abdul's Hey Paula (BRAVO).
Since the debut of What a Great Life in 2012, Russo has been creating commissioned pieces, animated greeting cards and other new products. He is also creating paintings at live appearances to benefit great charitable causes. His maze artwork is perpetually touring North America via Minotaur Maze Company.
