D Young V Brings His Vision to Life

D Young V’s drawings revolve around a narrative in which a turbulent militaristic environment calls on San Francisco youth to step up. This group of individuals seeks to rebuild the destroyed society it once knew, forming a new and better one in its place.

Until now, D Young V has referenced existing images to draw from. But last week he took things a step further with a full blown photo shoot to get exactly what he wanted, inviting friends and strangers to participate. A warehouse space filled up with about twenty people including models, photographers, and even a military adviser.

Derek White is a former airborne infantry, deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, who came along to direct the models. He instructed them on achieving realistic posture, stance, and action poses. Shaun Roberts, Chris Blackstock, and Thomas Landerman photographed while Julianne Yates of Gallery Heist became the star model (she can even cry on command!). Everyone contributed props such as fake guns, helmets, fatigues, and masks to assemble a convincing costume wardrobe.

With a background in acting, Juliane really captured the mood.

Amid the dramatic times, a documentarian is always key.

Living in San Francisco has stirred D Young V’s interest in the idea of messengers. They bear the essential task of transporting ideas, information, weapons, goods, or anything else necessary to the cause.

These photographs will be used in D Young V’s newest body of work, which is surely going to be as fantastic as the last. Click through for the full picture.

To see more drawings from D Young V, check out his September 2009 show at Gallery Three.

Also look out for him at White Walls’ Winter Group Show.

In good tradition, D Young V spent the eve of his opening throwing up a collection of street characters on the block. San Francisco Youth Report brought an impressive crowd up the stairs to Gallery Three, and everyone was in good spirits. Thanks to everyone who came out in support of our beloved Tenderloin artist. Look on for more details from Saturday’s opening reception at Gallery Three: home to D Young V’s works on paper until October 3rd, 2009.

Exclusive Video Interview: D Young V

In anticipation of San Francisco Youth Report

Opening Saturday, September 12th at Gallery Three

Live Forever. This is the title of D Young V’s ongoing series that narrates a history yet to be played out. Now entering its third installment with San Francisco Youth Report, David’s projection of American society is detailed through black and white images. Just as Orwell would invent a future society through written word, D Young V expresses his vision through images of refugees, militarism, and rising leaders. Watch this exclusive video for a break down of Young’s “new” San Francisco straight from the mouth of the artist.

Here we go with our second video diary from D Young V. His May 2009 solo show at Cafe Royale titled Neighborhood Watch was the second installment of his “Live Forever” series, to be continued at Gallery Three this September. This video documents the politics behind Neighborhood Watch: the fall of capitalism, public safety, and the symbolism of military vehicles.

Keep your eyes out for D Young V’s San Francisco Youth Report opening next Saturday, September 12th at Gallery Three.

Video: D Young V at Babylon Falling

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.
