In Uncategorized on December 29, 2011 at 9:32 pm


Todd DiCiurcio (Born: 1972 in Pennsylvania. Lives and works in New York). Artist and director.

His drawings and paintings work as a respond to, and created within live music events. The artist has become really known on the New York art scene with his dynamic portraits of up and coming and hot music talents.

The artist appeared cameo on Gossip Giorl in  episode 3, season 3.


Each paintings he makes origins from a skecth of the artit while he or she performs live. In this way he captures the moment in which the energy finds it self.Later on it is beeing transffered on to a canvas. In the works from the exhibition “GOLD” at The Cob Gallery, the artist combined a metallic gold base with printing of his drawing in black enamel, hand-finishing each work on canvas with a coating of diamond dust to create a glittering effect on 45″ x 59″ canvases.


Featured in episode 3, season 3. Todd Diciurcio and Blake Lively (Serena  van der Woodsen looking after a job at the “John Porto Gallery”.

This is what the artist told Chic Report after the shoot at Silvercup Studios:

“The cameo experience was very interesting and fun. When I work on a film, I’m usually on the other side of the lens. I have known most of the cast for some time now, and they are all a gifted bunch….The scene is quick & I was still a bit nervous on the set, which I guess is normal, but Casey Fremont (from Art Production Fund) was there with me and I was cast as myself, being surrounded by some works from my debut show, “Synthesis,” a set made to look like a solo show of mine during a montage scene, and the dialogue was put in on the fly.”

The artist is also pleased to work with Ed Westwick. As a member of the band The Filthy Youth, he performed at an exhbition Todd DiCiurcio held at Sonto’s Party House in New York.

Marilyn Minter- “Stepping Up”  Enamel on metal, 96 x 60 in.

Marilyn Minter (Born: 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana but raised in Florida. Currently lives and works in New York).

Minter helds a master of fine art degree from Syracuse University. She  now teaches in fine art at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

While she was student, Marilyn Minter created a series of photographic studies with her drug -addicted  mother among the objects. Later she started to incorporate the sexuality from the Pop-derived pictures, and imagery from the porn industry. Her works  often include sexuality, erotic imagery, and a touch of “urban glam”.  Minter uses the good old darkroom in the process, and is not a fan of digital manipulation.

Marlin Minter is one of the greatest and most important living temporary artist, and is widely known among collectors and institutions.
