Russell Young is a British-American artist best known for large silkscreen paintings using imagery drawn from recent history and popular culture.  Young studied photography, film, drawing, graphic design and first gained recognition in London photographing the early live club shows in the late 1970s of Bauhaus, R.E.M. and the Smiths, and with editorial work for magazines. Relocating first to Los Angeles and then New York in 2000, Young began to concentrate on art and to devote himself to painting. Heavily influenced by Pop Art pioneer Andy Warhol, his portraits of cultural icons reveal and explore the nature of the American counter culture as seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up in Northen England.
