ALEX ROSS TO UNVEIL THE “YELLOW SUBMARINE PORTFOLIO BOXED SET”

Alex’s Limited Edition

“Yellow Submarine”

Portrait Set Will Be Released this Spring

at an event in Las Vegas.

On Saturday, April 30th, artist Alex Ross will officially reveal the highly anticipated Beatles Yellow Submarine Portfolio Boxed Set. The reveal of his portraits entitled “John, Paul, George and Ringo,” comes almost a year after the announcement was made of the partnership between Alex and Apple Ltd, that was brokered by their North American licensing agent, Bravado International.

The event will take place at The Beatles Shop at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and Alex will be making a rare public appearance to sign pieces from his “Yellow Submarine” collection.

Driven by the Beatles legendary music and inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, “Yellow Submarine” is a classic of animated cinema. The film resides within the dazzling styles of Pop Art, yet it’s “Yellow Submarine’s” art direction and production design by Heinz Edelmann  that most defined the film’s pioneering look, and it’s in this spirit of unique innovation that Alex’s highly unusual take can best be appreciated.

“For as long as I can remember hearing music, I have loved the Beatles. Not only do I believe they are the greatest musical group of all time, but also one of the greatest things to have happened in human history. “Yellow Submarine” has also been one of my favorite films since I was six years old. The opportunity to work with the Beatles’ likenesses in the very inspired context of the “Yellow Submarine” film is an absolute dream come true. There is so much I love about these men, their legacy and this film.”

Actually, as much as I love the Beatles, and these portraits are really spectacular, I am find that I am also really digging on Alex’s “Battle of the Planets” pieces (viewable on his website). I may have to make some inquiries…
