Young is an artist who I first noticed at Art Chicago, probably in 2010. I have a habit where I write down an artist name and the name of one of their works and some basic description. Two days later I forget 80 percent of them. I remembered Young.
Although, it might have actually been Art Basel week in Miami where I first noticed Young. Nonetheless, below you will find the various shows Young is participating in. His work struck me because his nightscapes were so alive. Often the subject matter is some mundane thing—a gas station, for instance. But they breathe as the night does. They are not black and static. It is a unique vision.
Also look for Youngs art at;

Three generations of important artists are involved and we were late posting this so you missed the receptions.
