In Gossip Girl Art, Season 2, Season 3, Uncategorized on October 4, 2011 at 6:56 am

(The work  left to the staircase is by Aaron Young. Its a panel from the project “Greeting Card”)

Aaron Young (Born: 1972 in San Francisco, CA. Lives and works in New York).

Aaron Young created uproar when he invited a local biker to drive a motorcycle until he either could not see through all the smoke or his tires were burned, in Francisco Art Institue’s gallery.  As payment, Young gave the biker beer. The artist on the other hand was nearly expelled from the school.


(Panel from the “Greeting Card”.  Was up for auction at Christie’s March 2011. Close to the one in Gossip Girl).

The result of the wild, but short drive was a drawing on the floor-which had been Diego Riveras earlier studio.   In spite of the unconventional performance, Aaron Young was allowed to continue his education, and has later participated in many important shows and exhibitions. The artist is now highly requested.

Young is also known for his collaboration with Nate Lowman, but mostly known his teamwork with different representatives from different subcultures or rebels like bikers and skateboarders.

(The text was posted earlier on March 21, 2011).

Aaron Young is also known for beeing a part of the “Warhol’s Children”, a group of NewYork-based and Warhol-inspired artists who have achieved a lot of attention in the art world.

In collaboration with the Art Production Fund and the Park Avenue Armory, Young held his first public show in New York, placed in the Drill Hall, september 2007. The project was named “Greeting Card”, inspired by Jackson Pollock.Young painted 288 panels of plywood in colors of pink, red,orange and yellow fluorescent, painted with black on the top concealing the brighter colors. He then placed all the panels out on the floor, forming a 128 x 72 feet canvas on which twelve motorcycle riders performed after direction from Aaron Young. The movements from the tires formed a pattern of burnouts on the panels. It is one of this panels which is placed in the Gossip Girl- show.
