Purvis young

(1945-2010) Miami, FL

Purvis Young's art was first discovered in the early 1970s when he covered a block-long section of abandoned storefronts known as Goodbread Alley in Overtown with his paintings. He is now regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the late 20th century; his work is held in countless private and museum collections.
