Purvis Young creates art from a gut instinct, using materials found from the streets of Miami's inner city. The resulting work constitutes powerful and honest art of the last thirty years. Young's work expresses his heartfelt concern for his community's roots and lifelong friends. The abundance of pregnant women populating the neighborhood, the hustle, bustle and chaos in the street, the infusion of boat people, the trucks passing above on the elevated interstate, funerals, celebrations, wars, soldiers and Blues music men populate his oeuvre.
