‘His large silkscreen paintings of popular culture evidence a creative individual steeped in contemporary glamour, his work expressive of the shock and awe of fame, or those in close proximity to its glare and grit.’

John Finlay, Art Historian

Alluding to the great Pop artists of past and present, Young reinvents bold, sometimes brutal imagery turned upon itself in alienation and entrapment while bearing witness to the ambition and glamorous excesses of 21st-century America. Young's artistic output embraces painting, screenprinting, sculpture, installations, and film. As his art evolves, the darks become darker, the lights bigger and brighter.

Selected Works

'When he discovers an image that pulls him in, he devours it, appropriates it, alters, colours, warps, translates and transforms it to such an extent it becomes something new entirely. In his work, we see the magnetic purpose of a wandering soul to create and connect lost things and people, and through this act, release infinite layers of meaning out into the multiverse.’
Taylor Garcia Dixon, writer and creative director
