CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, February 05, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Russ C. Warren with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Mr. Warren celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Having accrued over 30 years of inimitable experience as a contemporary figurative painter, Mr. Warren retired from his position as a professor of art at Davidson College in North Carolina in 2008. Prior to entering academia, he contributed for a year as a designer for Williams and Williams in Florida. Exhibited extensively through the U.S. and abroad since 1972, he has been featured in countless group and solo exhibitions. His work has also been included in multiple private collections, books and catalogs. Most notably, however, some of Mr. Warren's paintings have been included in the 1981 Whitney Biennial and the 1984 Venice Biennale.
Mr. Warren's earlier creations, between 1979 and 1990, centered on what he called "funky figurative" and what others have described as "mad cap surrealist." He subsequently focused for the next decade on Paso Fino horses, which included a successful series called "Mare: A Work in Progress," which consisted of 20 oil paintings, each measuring 4 x 7', or 4 x 8'. Returning to the basics, he began a series of paintings that he referred to as psychoanalytical portraits, which followed with large scale paintings that were unruly in color. Today, Mr. Warren's neo-expressionist style often features flat figures, jagged shadows and semi-autobiographical content.
Mr. Warren began his studies under Earl Staley at the University of Saint Thomas in Houston from 1969 until 1971. Transferring to the University of New Mexico, he later received a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1973. He then attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, with which he taught on a teaching fellowship and received a Master of Fine Art in 1977. A celebrated Marquis listee, Mr. Warren has been included in the 61st, 62nd and 63rd editions of Who's Who in America.
