The work of the urban black vernacular artist, Purvis Young, has roots in the dreamy fields of high art subject matter-evoking Picasso in its riders, its elegant horses, its nudes.  At the same time it is filled with the energy and syncretism of the world's vanguard-American urban Black culture.  It is to "outsider art" what be bop is to the blues.  The subject matter rides on a thick layer of color, attention, choice, free-swinging composition that refers to a thousand yea (showing 500 of 3758 characters).
