Photoshoot with David Young V

Photoshoot with David Young V

What do you get when you pool together a group of Tenderloin personalities and give them weaponry? Photo reference! (not a higher crime rate)

A couple of weeks ago, David Young V collaborated with photographer Shaun Roberts on a series of photoshoots to create reference for his upcoming series of ink drawings. The shoot took place at Space Gallery and included such artists as Akira Beard, C3, Jeff Bruton (The Loin), Brandie Grogan, Hugh Leeman, Aaron Lawrence, Red Jordan Arobateau, and yours truly (because I’m so adorable), Megan Wolfe.

The completed work will be part of Young’s upcoming solo show at White Walls, slated for 2011. Keep your eyes peeled for dates and previews! In the mean time, check out the video flipbook of the shoot by Shaun Roberts, as well as a video interview with David Young V by Colin Day and Mike Cuffe.
