Grouped in amongst the emerging Lower East Side art scene for years, there’s a distinctive difference when it comes to San Fransisco raised Aaron Young, the artist was Yale educated, and before he’d even graduated he had works at the MOMA! 2009 has seen Young come into his own, with some of the most successful shows of the year all around the globe. His burnout pieces have become iconic beyond their years, but Young isn’t by any means stuck on that theme, his use of Gold to customize normal everyday life pieces, the introduction of glass and more. Aaron Young knows art, he lives art and he is art, there is no doubt in my mind, Young will be one of the great survivors of this era, and 2010 is already looking busy for the NY/Miami based artist, with a massive show about to start at Gagosian Gallery in January.
