PEACE & LOVE, 2014
"Soho Contemporary Art is very excited to welcome Ringo Starr to our gallery in June. His artwork will look incredible next to Keith Haring & Jean-Michel Basquiat and all of our post-war contemporary artists. His work has evolved from doodles on his computer in his hotel room to a cutting edge street art feel."

"Ringo Starr's art reflects his playful personality and his new self portraits wearing a bandana and fisherman's cap wants us to believe that he could possibly pass as an anonymous "Street Artist" with one of the most recognizable faces in the world. Ringo's art is happy and compelling. It represents the "Peace and Love" lifestyle that he has promoted his entire career."
