In the 60's and 70's when I was growing up, the Beatles revolutionized popular music. It was a time when it seemed like every week everybody couldn't wait to hear what John Lennon and the Beatles would come up with next. They never failed to deliver.
John Lennon was one of the most influential songwriters of the 20th century. As the founder of the Beatles, he partnered with Paul McCartney in what is said to be the most successful musical partnership in history. Lennon had 25 #1 singles on the Billboard 100 chart. Rolling Stone ranked him the 5th-greatest singer and the 38th greatest artist of all time. On December 8, 1980 Lennon was assassinated by Mark David Chapman in New York.
This painting is done with acrylic paint on 2 sheets of 18"x24" plexiglass on top of 3 sheets of 24"x32" plexiglass.
The Pointillist painters of the 1880's were interested in using dots to visually mix colors. They used dots of different colors to simulate blended colors. For example, if dots of two colors are placed next to each other, from a distance they look like a third distinctive color. This Neo-Pointillist painting 'John Lennon' is my latest example of that Pointillist technique of mixing colors. This painting has around 24,000 dots!
