Xany Rudoff is a Los Angeles-based artist who has been working as a professional painter for the past ten years. Trained at one of the most prestigious fine art programs in the country, UCLA, Rudoff has been featured in many notable publications including Vanity Fair Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, The LA Weekly, and most recently, featured in a six page spread in the cutting edge London Art publication, Cock No.7, for their "Dreams" and "Vinyl" themed issues.
Born in Pasadena, California to an artist mother and art historian father, Rudoff moved with her family to the desert expanse of Apple Valley, CA, a site that would be crucial for her artistic development. In the wide, empty nothingness of the desert landscape, there were no limitations to Rudoff's imagination, and upon returning to Los Angeles to pursue her B.A. in fine arts at the University of California, Los Angeles, she was able to see the city and the art world from the outside.
Throughout the years, Xany's artwork has taken on many different themes and outlets. She began her highly political series about the Vietnam War and the American Media in the late 1990's touching upon such highly charged issues pertaining to the United States involvement in the war and the effect it had on society and the media fallout that occurred. Her recent work takes on the Iconization of celebrity and rock stars using the traditional techniques from the Byzantine Era of 24 carat gold leaf and watercolor.
Xany Rudoff's art work has been featured in many exhibitions and benefits and has donated her artwork for such charitable causes including the David Lynch Foundation, The Bill Graham Foundation, MusiCares Foundation, and the theatrical production of "Silver For Gold" produced by acclaimed musician David J.
Her paintings are collected by notable celebrities and musicians alike such as Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro, David Lynch, pop singer Pink, Alan McGee, and many others. She is represented by Drate/Salavetz in New York City.
