Russell Young was born in 1959 in Yorkshire. He is a British-American artist best known for his large scale silk screen paintings, which examine cultural icons, the nature of fame, and the souring of the American Dream. His earliest breakthrough was his photography of George Michael for the sleeve of the album Faith in 1987. He photographed many music stars throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including Morrissey, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, REM, The Smiths, Bauhaus, Diana Ross, Paul Newman, Björk, and many others. He went on to shoot over 100 music videos for leading artists during MTV’s height in the 1990s, which brought him to the United States. He later moved to California, where he began his current practice with his sold-out show Pig Portraits in Los Angeles in 2003. The many series that have followed demonstrate his visceral, analog processes and signature use of diamond dust.

He has exhibited across the world in numerous galleries and museum, includign the Modern Art Museum Shanghai, Multimedia Art Museum Moscow, Cornell Art Museum, Polk Museum of Art, and the Goss-Michael Foundation. His genesis NFT debuted and sold on Superrare in 2022. Young’s work is included in many prominent private and institutional collections including those of Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama, David Bowie, Drake, Angelina Jolie, David Hockney, Kayne West, Brad Pitt, and others, as well as The Getty Collection in Los Angeles and The White House Collection in Washington, D.C. Russell Young’s works have crossed the auction block at all the world’s major auction houses, including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Phillips.
