This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Stephen Gamson (born 1965) is an American artist and art collector. He spent much of his youth visiting studios, museums, and researching art through books. As a student, he began collecting the work of artists he admired. After post-graduate studies in art history at Harvard University, in the early 1990s, Gamson had a one man show at the Candide Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2004, Gamson was the featured artist for the Nautica Project. This permanent show includes his creation of two aluminum sculptures, a 30’wide x 5’high mural and numerous paintings depicting life on Miami Beach. On January 26, 2008, a show including 29 of his acrylic on canvas paintings was displayed at a gallery in Miami. He displayed his work at an exhibition that opened on August 7, 2008 in Laguna Beach, California, and had a solo show in the Projects room at Frank Pictures Gallery, in Santa Monica, California, which opened on October 9, 2008.

In early December 2008, Gamson held a solo show, titled “Symbols and Portraits”, as part of Art Basel 2008. Gamson was the official artist for Café Bustelo. His artwork will appear internationally as Bustelo rolls out 100 retail stores. For 2009, Gamson has been commissioned to create large scale, high-profile projects in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He was also selected as the official poster artist for the 35th Annual Miami Beach Festival of the Arts in February, 2009.

Stephen has been featured in many publications such as The Hollywood Reporter, The Miami Herald, Haute Living Magazine, Six Degrees Magazine (page 25/26), and has been in articles on MSNBC, Reuters, and Yahoo! News.

Gamson has served on the board of directors for many organizations such as The Jackson Metropolitans (a division of The Jackson Memorial Hospital Foundation), The Shakers advisory board for the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Hugs and Kisses at the Miami Children's Hospital, The AJ Japour Art Gallery and Foundation, and is one of the founding members of Art for a Cause.

Biography from GallArt.com:
Stephen Gamson, born 1965, has created art for over 25 years. He attended Harvard University and conducted post-graduate studies in Art History. His work is easily recognizable for its direct and bold approach. Gamson is often compared to Keith Haring, and draws reference to Ellsworth Kelly, and Robert Indiana.

The foundation of his work is comprised of symbols that serve as cultural markers as they reduce an idea to its essence. Gamson carefully explores the power of simplicity with his use of color, shape, and composition. Gamson's creations document who we are and how we live
