Greetings Addictees!

Renowned for using powerful images appropriated from history and popular culture, British-American pop artist Russell Young, loves to glamourise “a very aggressive and violent image”.

Like pop artists past and present, Russell remakes these images which attest to the appetites and bewitching excesses of fame.
