"Painting Is My Madness," a limited edition book featuring Ringo Starr's computer artwork, is set to be released on June 19.
Ringo Starr published his first set of limited edition hand signed computer art pieces in 2005. Since that time he has continued to release new pieces and continued to raise money for the Lotus Foundation, a charitable organization that he set up with his wife Barbara Bach.
Ringo said, "I started in the late nineties with my computer art. While I was touring it gave me something to do in all those crazy hotels you have to stay in on the road."
In addition to over 40 reproductions of Ringo's computer art pieces, "Painting is My Madness" contains candid photos of Ringo and his art including personal photos from his wife. The book also features Ringo's humorous and insightful musings on his artwork.
"Painting is My Madness" will be limited to only 3,000 copies. There will also be a special collectors deluxe hand signed edition of "Painting is My Madness" that includes an 8" x 10" piece of Ringo's artwork. The hand signed book is limited to only 200 copies. As is the case with Ringo's hand signed art work, 100% of Ringo's proceeds from the sale of "Painting is my Madness" will be donated to the Lotus Foundation, who's objectives are to fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare.
"Painting is My Madness" is published by ArtCelebs and is available at all of Ringo Starr & the All-Starr Band concerts this summer or by going to www.RingoStarrArt.com.
