Superstar is the debut solo exhibition by celebrated British-American Pop artist Russell Young, at Halcyon Gallery.
Superstar showcases a brand new body of work that is part of an ongoing exploration into the visual nature of fame and celebrity, as Young attempts to define the essence of what truly makes a 'superstar'. With his trademark vividly-coloured, larger-than-life canvases, Young reinterprets iconic imagery featuring two of popular culture's most famous faces: contemporary catwalk heroine, Kate Moss and modern screen siren, Marilyn Monroe.
'This exceptional body of work is displayed at the Halcyon Gallery, where the directors have created a real sense of fame and celebrity to perfectly complement Young’s art. We are presented with a celebration of a period arguably started by Monroe and finished by Moss and this is undoubtedly one of the finest exhibitions of its kind.'
