The first NeoPopRealist artworks Nadia Russ created in 1989. She used black ink pen on white paper. In 1992-1994, her first NeoPopRealist drawings appeared in bi-monthly magazine “Russian Justice” as the stories’ illustrations. Later, more of her work were featured in other publications. In 1990, Nadia Russ participated with her drawings in her first group art exhibition in Moscow’s Manege, the most prestigious exhibition place in Russia, located near Red Square. The following years, she was participating in more group exhibitions and had her solo shows in different countries. In 1996, Nadia Russ relocated to the Bahamas, where she spent four sunny years. In 2000, she moved to the New York City.
