Biography

Russell Young (born 13 March 1959) is a British-American artist best known for large silkscreen paintings using imagery drawn from recent history and popular culture. Young's artistic output includes painting, screen printing, sculpture, installations and film.

Young studied photography, film and graphic design at the University of Chester and later attended Exeter College of Art and Design. He moved to London and gained recognition photographing the early live club shows in the late 1970s of Bauhaus, R.E.M. and the Smiths, and with editorial work for magazines including BLITZ, which featured on several front covers. During this period he shot portraits of Morrissey, Björk, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, New Order, Diana Ross, and Paul Newman. In 1986, he shot the ‘Faith’ sleeve for George Michael. In the following ten years he directed many music videos, working with artists ranging from the Brand New Heavies to Eartha Kitt.[2]

In September 2000, while living in New York City, he began to concentrate on art and to devote himself to painting. Young's work has been shown nationally and internationally including at Scope/Basel, Switzerland SCOPE Art Show and Art Miami, Florida. He lives and works in New York and California.
