Russell Young - Liz Taylor silver + Atomic pink - Cream. Acrylic and diamond dust on canvas 95x75 cm.

Russell Young is interested in the places where the glamour of the American dream meets the darkness of crime, addiction, and death. He explores this in series such as “Dirty Pretty Things” (2010), in which screen printed images of notoriously tragic stars Marilyn Monroe and Kurt Cobain are sprinkled with diamond flakes. Young began as a straightforward photographer of celebrities, getting his start shooting the cover for George Michael's Faith album. Gradually, he shifted his approach to become an artist whose work comments on the phenomenon of celebrity portraiture.
