For June’s SF First Thursday Art Walk The Loin presents DYoungV – ‘EVERYTHING MATTERS’, a solo exhibition/mural installation and collaborative apparel line with The Loin, featuring hats, tee shirts, beer koozies and patches. Both the mural and clothing line will be a unique depiction of DYoungV’s symbol based depictions of the Tenderloin and the wealth of feelings this highly distinctive neighborhood evokes. Also included will be a small series of his classic micron pen drawings, for which he is widely known.
