The painting “Ms Understood” features a close-up of a happy pit bull dog panting. Looking up attentively, the dog has an expression of absolute joy. Created in Dean Russo’s unique pop art style, “Ms Understood” combines bright colors, bold shapes and dark lines to create a fun and playful image. On the tip of the tongue, Russo drew a heart that represents the dog’s love and loyalty to his owner. While pit bulls have a bad reputation because of their use as fighting dogs, Dean Russo negates the notion that pit bulls are a brutal violent dog breed with his title that plays on words and the dog’s expression.
