Art Brokerage: Russ Elliott American Artist: b. 1932. Russ Elliott is a designer's painter and likes the challenge of doing custom murals and paintings. His Hibiscus Restaurant project in North Palm Beach, Fl. for Carleton Varney was a testimony of transformation he created with a stroke of a brush. This Everglades mural was a 35-foot high wall and 45-feet in length. Varney also commissioned him to do the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia as well as Peters Island and the St. Croix Palm Mural, Rookwood restaurant in Ohio and the Trump Tower with clouds and a Koi Pond in a bathroom. The Carlyle Hotel had him restore the famous Bemmelman and the Erte murals with additional panels in the style of the former artists. Custom painting entails having a designer ask for a certain size and subject matter and color palette. Elliott's work is found in private home and public and commercial buildings.
