Jylian Gustlin is a native Californian and grew up in the San Francisco bay area. The technology explosion of Silicon Valley has shaped her and her.

 

“I knew that if I finished, I would never make art.” is how Jylian Gustlin explains leaving college one semester short of a degree in computer science and mathematics to attend the Academy of Art College, San Francisco. After completing her BFA, Jylian fused her understanding of computers and her passion for art to became a graphics programmer for Apple Computer, Inc. Now, Jylian uniquely combines the effects of modern technology with traditional techniques. While painting in acrylic and oil paints, her artwork often conveys the same complex layered effects possible in computer programs. Gustlin experiments with a variety of materials to discover their effects. Working with two-part epoxy resin, oil and acrylic paints, charcoal, wax, gold leaf, pastel and graphite on board, Gustlin draws, paints, and scratches on her surfaces.

 

Figures have always been an important part of Gustlin’s repertoire. Her characters are frequently set in an abstract landscape, with rich color and texture. Jylian has been influenced by a lifelong love of the Bay Area Figurative Artists.
