David Young V + Ivan Grianti
San Francisco, California
"I was born and raised Milan, Italy. I say this because the people in Milan helped raise me. Since I was a little kid, I have always drawn everything that was capturing my attention. At that age, movies were a big thing for me, as well as cartoons. I didn't know if i liked to draw, but I was finding it as a natural thing to do daily.
Concept art is the thing that brought me to San Francisco, where I am studying at Academy of Art University. Here I have met a ton of great people including D Young V, Akira Beard, John Wentz and many more.
All I want now is keep painting, get some murals finished and keep going.
The answer is in what you do and while you do it." - Ivan Grianti
