David Gilliver (Born: 1979 in Aberdeen, Scotland).Currently lives and works in St. Peter Port, on the Island of Guernsey.

During the 20 years  he spent living in Glasgow, Gilliver went to Glasgow School of Art where he recieved a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art Photography. He has recently found the great interest in the surroundings of Guernsey.The artist has become known specially known for his art of making psychadelic Light Paintings.

 

David Gilliver    “The Beacon”

The effect is not an object of computer manipulation, but a photographic technique called long exposure and many points of light.David Gilliver started to experiment with long exposure photography in hours around dusk and after sunset, allowing the camera to keep on exposing for longer time, producing images and effects incapable for the human eye to see.

 

David Gilliver    “Neon Ribbons”

The technique used by the artist, involves the photographer using a long- duration shutter speed on the camera, while he walks into the picture frame adding the lights he wants, using glow sticks, light orb or torches. The shoot may last as longs a 30 minutes. The effect also makes moving objects blurry, while stationary object remain sharp.

Cecily Brown- Gossip Girl Art, Season 2, ep. 19

In Gossip Girl Art, Season 2 on March 23, 2011 at 1:17 am

Lily Van der Woodsen being informed about a Brown “on the market” by her art dealer. In ep.19 season 2.

Cecily Brown (Born: 1969, London).

The artist studied in London where she received a BA in Fine Arts at Slade School of Art. Not soon after moving to the U.S, Mrs. Brown presented her works at her first solo exhibition in NY at Deitch Projects in 1997. This solo exhibition was a great success and got huge critical acclaim.

The artist also shows a great respect for art history and many of her works reveal her liking of artist such as Francisco de Goya and Willem de Kooning. Her paintings are mixed with figuration and abstraction.  She is known for giving her works titles after classic Hollywood films.

Brown is now one of the greats, and is popular among collector as for example Elton John and Michael Ovitz.  Her works have become rather expensive, but she makes nice original prints which are more “accessible”. (Below on the site).

The piece below was estimated between $600,000- $800,000 at Christies in November 2007. It was sold for $713,000.

Aaron Young- Gossip Girl Art, Season 2, ep. 19

In Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl Art, Season 2 on March 21, 2011 at 12:31 am

A work by Aaron Young in the background at Bergdorf & Goodman.

 

Aaron Young (Born: 1972, San Francisco, California).  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.

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.

His works are quite expensive, but not “unaffordable”.
