Purvis Young

Premier exhibition 7 September at F�brica La Aurora 12A San Miguel de Allende, M�xico coinciding with the artwalk (4-9PM) and runs through 31 October. Hours: Tues-Sat 11-6
Urban artist Purvis Young (1943-2010) grew up on the rough and tumble streets of Miami�s inner city neighborhood known as �Overtown�. An at-risk youth, his early years were spent in and out of prison with charges ranging from Breaking & Entering to Vietnam War protestor. During one of his brief stints behind bars, Young picked up a paintbrush and began to chronicle contemporary society�s ills. Many of the same social issues still confronting us today; economic oppression, endless wars, racial profiling, transmigration, political polarization, religious zeitgeist.

No More Truth��in specific explores Young�s relationship with the iconic images illustrating Miguel de Cervantes� canonical novel of Don Quijote.

Finding inspiration in the art books of Dal�, Dor�, Picasso and Daumier, the self-taught Young reinterprets with great pride and personal conviction the enconters of knight-errant Don Quijote.

Often said, �I have these dreams where I ride as a warrior on horseback with the great Shaka Zulu� and �My Father sent me here to paint the world�s problems�, Young�s messages offer us a glimpse of hope and optimism in the tireless fight of good versus evil whether in reality or merely in our mind.
