Art Exhibit: IMAGINE-ation! The Lyrics of The Beatles Illustrated...and more!Thursday August 1, 2019
Go back in time! Enjoy these illustrations by Richard Cali that visually depict the lyrics of The Beatles, along with a few original portraits sprinkled in. These little works of art were all digitally created on an iPad Pro, with flourishes, swirls and colors that are very reminiscent of rock 'n' roll's greatest era... the swingin' 60s!
On exhibit for the month of August in the library Meeting Room.
Richard Cali is a local graphic artist. An advertising art director by day, his love for music and illustration takes up his spare time. He recently began illustrating on an iPad Pro, using the Procreate app to develop a new series of works. An avid music fan, The Beatles are his favorite group, and these new illustrations are based on his love of that music. Rich finds lyrics and songs that say something to him visually, then illustrates the lyrics digitally in a fluid, flourish-filled style that is very reminiscent of the 60’s rock and roll era. Most of his drawings are black and white with a splash of color, while others are developed in full, vivd color. Some are fun and whimsical, some are serious. The portraits sprinkled in alongside the illustrations are rich with characters he has developed. Rich’s style of illustration is something to see, pieces that are clever, whimsical, and fun. Come take a look and go back in time!
Meet the artist at a reception on Thursday, August 8 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm, where Mr. Cali can explain how he uses the computer to create his works of art.
