Walking through the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, you wouldn’t be surprised to find D Young V drawing at Cup of Joe or creating live art at Space Gallery. You can see his piece, “Live Forever,” currently hanging in our exterior window and we are excited to welcome him into Gallery Three on September 12th for San Francisco Youth Report.
Babylon Falling did a studio visit with D Young V in preparation for their final exhibition, The End Is Near, in May 2009. In this video, a few words from the artist lend insight to the politics behind his imagery. Watch below to learn how post-war America, the modern day soldier, and hipsters/punk rockers have influenced his work.
