Young remains true to his medium, screen-printing on the same printer originally used by cultural icon and Pop Artist Andy Warhol. Each of Young’s backgrounds are unique and hand-painted, using paints that he has mixed himself from pigments gathered from around the world. Some canvases are printed up to nine times, each layer enhancing the tactile quality, and thus the depth, of his work.
Russell Young’s paintings and photographs have been featured in countless solo shows and group exhibitions, museums and art fairs, publications and personal collections, and have crossed the auction block at all of the world’s top auction houses, including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Phillips.
