Russell Young (b. 1959) approaches celebrity culture from an unexpected, contrary stance. The internationally renowned artist presents icons of his youth and British Punk as ‘anti-celebrity’ portraits of the American Dream, deliberately rejecting the universally agreed sheen of fame. Young presents characters in a sensitive light, revealing and applauding their weakness.
Celebrities and the most discriminating collectors like Abby Rosen, the Getty’s, Elizabeth Taylor, David Hockney, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, David Bowie and President Barack Obama have added Russell’s works to their collections.
