“San Francisco Youth Report”
New Works by D Young V
Gallery Three is proud to present “San Francisco Youth Report,” the latest installment of an ongoing exhibit titled “Live Forever” by D Young V. This body of new work chronicles the transitional phase of a post-apocalyptic society: where the youth of tomorrow take aggressive authority to rebuild a community. Please join us for the opening reception of “San Francisco Youth Report” at Gallery Three on September 12th, 2009 from 7pm till 11pm.
This exhibit narrates a story set in the aftermath of a socio-economic collapse of the world financial system and the deterioration of Democracy. It focuses on a new generation of social structure, where children take control over operational government. The result is a formation of a youth militia, demonstrated in “San Francisco Youth Report.” He emphasizes the militaristic elements of war, fascism, and the modern soldier to the extreme by applying them to innocent children. Alluding to an aggression that has been seen throughout history, he alters common perceptions of war and reveals another side of humanity.
D Young V is a pen and ink artist currently working out of San Francisco’s Tenderloin. Influenced by wheat pastes and graffiti, his monochromatic drawings might be mistaken as a stencil from afar. With a closer look, the extent of his penmanship becomes obvious. His line work is meticulously detailed, illuminating every stroke and process of the piece. D Young V has a BFA in fine arts from Manhattanville College, Purchase, NY and a MFA in painting from the Academy Of Art, San Francisco, CA. While attending the Academy Of Art his interest in urban art began to influence his works. His roots in punk and sub-youth culture transcends and in many of the ink on archival paper works which have been shown in SF galleries such as Space Gallery and Babylon Falling.
