ROYAL YOUNG
LUSH DOOM
September 12 - October 9, 2015

Reception: Saturday, September 12 from 6-9 PM

Royal Young was raised on the Lower East Side of the early '90s by an artist father whose mosaic murals decorated subway stations commissioned by the MTA. Young grew up amidst artists, junkies, prostitutes and dreamers often indistinguishable from one another.

In his show Lush Doom Young's paintings evoke the vibrantly colored street murals he saw in the gorgeous, derelict downtown of his youth. Updated with a modern Pop Art sensibility, Young is inspired by vintage Playboys, noir movie stars, desperate characters and lost decadence. Young paints fantasy figures of femme fatales. Lush Doom explores a mysterious, enticing world that is doomed to crumble through dynamic, bold visuals.

Royal Young is author of the cult classic memoir Fame Shark. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, New York Post and Interview Magazine. He majored in visual art at LaGuardia.
