Purvis Young Drawings


Purvis Young Drawings



Realized on found and often distressed supports, Young’s works are populated by a recurring set of motifs that includes angels and ancestors, refugees and prisoners, pregnant women and protestors, soldiers, and workers—all drawn from his immediate environment and from the aspirations and histories of those around him. “Purvis Young: Drawings” at ICA Miami showcases a selection of the artist’s vibrant works on paper.
