Jason Gibilaro is a London-based artist who has exhibited his paintings extensively in solo and group shows.
He has been involved with the production and direction of numerous public art installations in London.
Jason Gibilaro recent paintings have concentrated on the differences and similarities between the urban environments of London and New York, as well as documenting elements of the art scene in these two cities. Another subject matter he has been covering has been a social documentation of a particular moment in time around artists and friends at various art events.
In 2008 he was invited by the Icelandic Artist Association to do an Artist Residency in Korpúlfsstaðir; a former disused diary farm just outside Reykjavik that had been converted into Artist Studios. He was based there until May 2009 where he has produced a body of work based from his experience. Much of the imagery takes its focal point around the global banking crisis, which has decimated so many economies around the world, and has had a particular impact in Iceland. He has also produced a series of landscapes observing the natural environment.
