"Jagger 1968" Diamond Dust Screen Print by Russell Young
Edition of 7. This hand-pulled acrylic paint and enamel screen print with diamond dust on linen.
ACTUAL diamond dust is covering the print image. Amazing. The work is signed on verso. This large piece (5 feet by 4 feet) currently hangs in the Decoratum gallery in London. There you can purchase the piece for its asking price of $32,500. Hit me up if you're interested and we can arrange acquisition. It would be such a fabulous conversation piece, no?

|AFTER: The pile-by-pile method broke up the colossal pressure of the project.|

|AFTER: Previously, this bookshelf was under-utilized until we assigned each shelf a 'job.'|
|BEFORE: Looking out to the hallway through a series of messy obstacles|
|AFTER: Clear, clean and cool.|
