As his art evolves, the darks become darker, the lights bigger and brighter.
British-American Pop artist Russell Young is best known for his larger-than-life silkscreen paintings alluding to the great Pop artists of past and present. Through this imagery 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. Painting, screenprinting, sculpture, installations, and cinema are all included in Young's artistic output. As his art evolves, the darks become darker, the lights bigger and brighter.
"His large silkscreen paintings of popular culture evidence a creative individual steeped in contemporary glamour, his work expressive of the shock and awe of fame, or those in close proximity to its glare and grit."
John Finlay, art historian
