Beatle Brunch is very proud to have Anthony Parisi's
work on our site and in our promotional materials. We first met
Anthony way back, when it was called "Beatlefest" in New
Jersey, and we were immediately taken by his gorgeous and playful
renditions of The Beatles and their friends in his artwork. From
that day forward, Anthony has been a member of the Beatle Brunch
Family. You might know Anthony's work and not even realize that
it he is one in the same.
Anthony's work has most recently been been featured in a new book
entitled "Beatles Art: Fantastic New Artwork of the Fab Four"
(Boxigami Books, 2006). Five of his full-color Beatle illustrations
were selected to be in this new publication, including a three-page
fold out spread (one of only 4 in the book) featuring "Fab
Forty", a caricature of the Beatles with Ed Sullivan.
other illustrations that appear are "Beatles 64", "Roof
Top", "John & His 325" and "Breakfast With
The Beatles". For the second year in a row, Anthony has won
First Place in the Fest for Beatle Fans art competition. The winning
illustration entitled "Hamburg" is a new piece depicting
John, Paul, George, Pete & Stew in Germany. This marks Parisi's
5th blue ribbon overall.
In Philadelphia, four illustrations by local artist Anthony Parisi
are on exhibit in The 7th Annual Classic Rock Art Show. The Exhibit
runs through March 31st. The 4 illustrations that are in the exhibit
are "Beatles Roof Top", "Jimi Hendrix", "The
Who" and "Alice Cooper".
Anthony likes to think of himself as a "face specialist",
but also has a knack for stylizing the human form to give two dimensional
figures the fluidity and illusion of motion. Anthony's love of illustration,
The Beatles and historical musical instruments (he is a self proclaimed
guitar junkie) adds to the historic authenticity of every illustration
that he creates. His work will be hanging with the likes of John
Lennon, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Ron Wood, Ringo Starr and
John Entwistle. Of course, Anthony's range of talent extends far
beyond The Beatles, into a galaxy far, far away.
has created hilarious drawings of Star Trek and The Sopranos.
