art during the first day (before and between presentations) which will be
raffled off to an audience member at his final presentation.
“I enjoy painting
ad hoc and I think it’ll be a great way of getting people to think about where
they’d put a contemporary piece in their home, as they’ll potentially win the
piece that’s right there,” comments Gidding.
share some takeaways for how to feel about your own “art collection”;
identify ways of making walls have a purpose in each room; introduce different
usages of art in interiors through furniture, installations, paintings,
graffiti, etc.; and discuss the role of art in Trading Spaces and why
it’s always put off as "homework."

About John Gidding
Growing up in a family of artists in Istanbul, Turkey, John Gidding’s
first design influences were a love of traditional decorative arts and
ornamental techniques. He then completed
the modern half of his education with a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University
and a Master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of
Design. John has enjoyed combining the
best part of both aesthetic approaches with projects all around the world,
ranging from residential and institutional architecture to landscape and urban
design. Some of his favorite projects
include working on the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Union Square with award-winning
landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. He’s also worked on the campus plans for
Carnegie Mellon University, Yale University, and Cornell University, and a
pavilion for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
John was working as a runway model for Armani and Gucci while getting
his graduate degree when a scout called him in for a show casting, starting off
a parallel career in television as a design expert on ABC, NBC, CNN, HGTV,
Logo, and most recently on TLC as one of the new designers on the relaunch of
"Trading Spaces”. John is a
social media influencer and is always looking for new freelance collaborations
with creators and makers while he travels the country as a keynote speaker and
