Young Yatch Owners of America (Y.Y.O.A) is an artist group of J. Nub, Roach Master, Tha Black Krayon, Anibal Padrino, & Juan Doe. These Modern day Marco Polos sail into Philadelphia’s harbor. Creative Thriftshop and Philadelphia’s Union Gallery are delighted to present the first group show from the Young Yacht Owners of America. Y.Y.O.A is an experimental statement examining utopian fantasies and contemporary myth making.
They call themselves freedom-fighting artists who believe in Yachtism. Yachtism is described as a new political and social consciousness that uses the yacht as a vessel to transcend above the troubles of the world that in their view, is under assault by the present regime. In adjusting to a global environment replete with scandalous politics, poisoned apple pie, and sadness seeping through the pores of our everyday cosmos, the members of the Y.Y.O.A have begun a vóyage that extends past the flatness of the earths’ horizon of ignorant anchors. They are modern day Marco Polos; explorers of paint and desire, satirical sailors of the RGB spectrum. However, all are captains of their own ships.
This exhibition, larger than any one previously attempted by this group, will lay bare an uncompromising honestly for a new generation of sophisticated pirates and robin hoods everywhere.
