Elizabeth Peyton: Forever Friends

The fact that Elizabeth Peyton is a case for eiskellerberg.tv is hardly surprising. The eagerly awaited meeting took place during her solo exhibition Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton at Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht and was for both sides a surprise. We took it seriously with the interview as a job interview and asked Elizabeth to make video portraits for eiskellerberg.tv of people from her illustrious circle of friends. She agreed.

Within a few years she became the center of a young artist scene in New York. An invitation to a Peyton party is more than the admission to Cooper Union.
Young Celebrities appear in her paintings as casual, slightly melancholic pop icons. She is reluctant and observes her friends for a long time before she decides to do a portrait. Who Peyton portrays will certainly become a star because she is one of the most famous painters of today.

Most recently, she published her photographs. We look forward to her first video portraits…

Art Basel Hong Kong im Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) bestreiten wollen. Eine Kampfansage.
