Russell Young

British-American Pop artist, Russell Young is best known for compelling, larger-than-life silkscreen paintings appropriated from recent history and popular culture. Alluding to the great Pop artists of past and present, he reinvents bold, sometimes brutal imagery turned upon itself in alienation and entrapment while bearing witness to the ambition and glamorous excesses of 21st-century America.

 

Russell Young looks past the darker side of excess and sets his sights on pure stardom with a cast of characters instantly recognizable for their embodiment of American fame. A wall of heroes and a wall of heroines immortalize icons and the nature of longing with the artist’s signature, luxurious use of diamond dust. This collection of stars is not only an ode to beauty, success, and possibility, but also the unending search to grasp the American Dream.
