From the silk screen to the blockchain: Russell Young brings Marilyn to the metaverse

British-American artist Russell Young has made a name for himself with his 3-dimensional, diamond-dusted silk screens. Now, he comes to NFTs.$

"To discover this new way of bringing images to life in a new medium was an incredibly rewarding process. I already think of my work in a linear, cinematic sense because my practice consists of creating series of screen prints that are of icons, protagonists of America’s culture and counterculture throughout history. NFTs allow me to translate the filmic language of my physical work and give it an energy all of its own."
