Today’s artist to watch is Ringo Starr.
Yes, that Ringo Starr. Ringo is primarily known as drummer for the Beatles but he is an accomplished visual artist as well. He began doing art on his computer as a way to pass time while on tour. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Ringo’s artwork at an arts show several years ago and also at one of his concerts. His colorful, expressive faces, peace signs and stars are produced digitally and they pop with a unique creativeness that’s evident in all of Ringo’s artistic ventures.
You can see and buy Ringo’s artwork in Atlantic City this weekend prior to his All Starr Band concert at Caesar’s Circus Maximus Theater Saturday night. Can’t make it to Atlantic City? You can also see his work exhibited at I. Brewster & Company Gallery in Philadelphia. His work is hand- signed and available in limited editions. Proceeds from the sale of his artwork go to charity.
Visit Ringo’s website for more information on his artwork.
