Heather James Fine Art is pleased to present a special exhibition by Russell Young on view at our Palm Desert, California gallery through May.

Russell Young’s oversized depictions of celebrities, historical figures, and iconic American moments are both confessions and protests by a former insider grown disenchanted with modern sensationalism. A crucial characteristic of Young’s portraiture is his signature use of diamond dust. He began using diamond dust in 2007, pressing it directly into the enameled surfaces of his printed portraits. We are attracted to what the diamond dust represents: luxury, riches and notoriety. But, the physical characteristics of the diamond dust – its sharpness and hardness – contrast the sensibilities of those portrayed just beyond its shimmer.


Russell Young has gained international recognition for his artwork. His prints and paintings have been shown at numerous galleries in London, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Singapore, New York, Detroit, Miami and Los Angeles. He is also included in such acclaimed collections as those belonging to Liz Taylor, Brad Pitt, The Saatchi Collection, President Barack Obama, David Bowie, The Estate of Marilyn Monroe, and the Polk Museum of Art.
