Alex Ross recently announced a deal with Apple Corps Ltd. to release a series of limited edition artwork inspired by The Beatles. His next work in the ongoing “Yellow Submarine” series will be “John, Paul, George and Ringo.” Ross is a fan of The Beatles saying:
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.”
The brightly colored images capture the spirit of the age, combining portraiture with more abstract imagery drawn from the songs.
