SALUT is the visual arts moniker of the Rochester-based artist Bradd Young. Young studied graphic design and studio art in Virginia where he began organizing pop-up exhibitions that would eventually lead him to open up a studio in Western New York after graduation. It was then that Young began to develop a color palette of soft pastels and a style merging his loves of cartoonish surrealism and fine art.  
Young has displayed work in Virginia and at several venues in both Western New York and New York City. In 2018, SALUT was the only local muralist featured in the 11th annual WALL\THERAPY project in Rochester. In February 2019, SALUT was celebrated as one of the exciting talented artists at the Memorial Art Gallery’s MAG social. In Spring 2019, Young designed several labels for Trophy Brewery Co. in North Carolina. In 2020, Young was selected by Memorial Art Gallery to design the posters, cards, and pamphlets for the promotion of the museum’s annual fundraiser, An Artists’ Affair at the MAG.  
Young is a featured artist of the Rochester-based gallery UUU Art Collective, which acts as a venue to both curate upcoming young artists and musicians and promote community activism. Currently, SALUT's paintings are displayed throughout businesses in downtown Rochester.
