Lot Details

This print is from the series "Fame + Shame." Young's statement about the series:

"This series of paintings explores American History from the last thirty years, seen through my eyes, as a young man growing up in Northern England.

These gritty, bare, pop, iconographic screen-prints of historic events; my heroes and heroines shown the way I want them seen; glamorous in the dark side of crime, fame, sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. Elizabeth Taylor in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” Jimi Hendrix, Man Landing on the Moon, The Vietnam Conflict, The Magnificent Seven, Black Power at the 1968 Olympics, Marlon Brando and The Sex Pistols.

My creative process is the culling of images from newspapers, historical archives and the people who witnessed these events. With these paintings, I take this process and show you how different cultures view America; which in itself is worthy of attention."
