dirty pretty things

Directed by Tyrone and Jamie Wood (sons of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood), Scream Gallery has carved a unique niche for itself within the contemporary art world, bringing to light the more hidden talents of some of the biggest names in music and pop culture.

Opening Thursday February 4th, Scream is featuring the new series by Warholite artist, photographer, and music video director Russell Young. The collection focuses largely on Marilyn Monroe and Kurt Cobain, two of the most influential figures of pop culture who share similarly tragic, yet brilliant, legacies. In this new set of haunting paintings and screen prints, Young utilizes his signature technique of infusing his pigments with 'diamond dust,' adding "a magical glittering effect that imbues the images with an ethereal quality."
