About Giles Gilson
GILES GILSON EARLY YEARS
|Giles Gilson was born in Philadelphia,
PA and has a very unique and diverse background. In his youth, he
was constantly exposed to fine arts, music, theatre, and at the same time was
fascinated by science and technology.
He learned a lot about industrial tools and technology from his father who was a machinist and tool maker. His fascination with air craft and flying also came from his dad who started teaching Giles to fly at the age of 9. From that time he began studying aerodynamics, and aircraft design, automobile design and function, and began to study music.
Giles got a job as a taxicab dispatcher at age 13, and his boss had him driving the cabs when he was 15. Giles studied Fine arts with a special teacher -mentor , and by "chance" received a university level education in art during his mid-school, and high school years. By contrast, he was also the top physical sciences student in his school.
Giles really liked the feelings and strength of the aesthetics used in the "Classic Era" aircraft and automobiles, so he worked on many restorations of cars from that time. He also built cars.
When Giles was preparing for his commercial pilotís license, he felt it was important to fly and understand historical aircraft, so he found someone who had vintage biplanes for rent, and spent many hours flying them. The experience was very valuable because it gave this artist a real sense of the adventure that helps a person gain confidence and character. At this time, he also designed colors for airplanes, and worked closely with builders of experimental class aircraft.
Giles studied theater and drama for 8 years, and worked at jobs in factories where he learned even more about the technology of design and engineering. He has experience in product design and development, and has built many industrial models and prototypes. He worked in the field of advertising / product promotion, where he was required to solve problems quickly, and find ways to create illusions for the camera.
