Red Carpet: D Young V

Red Carpet

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.

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.
