It's a persona thing. I'm looking at who Steven Tyler presents himself to be. But I'm also looking at who he really is... I want to find his 'soul' and bring it to light in a way that he might not expect.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
Bethany Vanderputten, illustration artist, is pleased to announce the release of her new album “Dream On! A Tribute to Aerosmith”, showcasing her hand-painted illustration art at http://www.bethanyillustrates.com. The new album goes live on Febuary 1, 2011. In her radiant and dramatic paintings, Bethany captures the excitement of one of the greatest musical performers of our time, Aerosmith, and their lead singer, Steven Tyler.
Exploring the Charisma of Musical Genius
Aerosmith’s continually fresh cultural influence and musical style intrigue Bethany. She has chosen to portray the band personified by Native American images and story that she believes are inextricably interwoven into Steven Tyler’s personality.
At the heart of Bethany's art is the exploration of the music genius: “It's a persona thing. I'm looking at who Steven Tyler presents himself to be. But I'm also looking at who he really is and trying to think about that. I want to present something about him to the world that he’s never seen. I want to find his 'soul' and bring it to light in a way that he might not expect." - Bethany Vanderputten
How do you portray the soul of a music genius?
How do you express the electric excitement of the live performance, the emotional power of the song, the mystique of the performer who is idolized by fans all over the world?
For illustration artist Bethany Vanderputten, this is her passion, her quest and her muse. She has dedicated herself to exploring, in paint, the living music legends of our time. Bethany's paintings translate the emotive power of music into visual images that celebrate and reveal the essence of the music genius.
Creative collaboration brings art and music together
Bethany offers creative collaboration with top musical performers, to construct a visual identity package that is inspired by, and beautifully complements, the musical experience.
For each artist, Bethany creates a series of paintings that accompany songs, an album or live experience. Whether it's through portraiture, concert scenes or symbolic imagery, Bethany's illustrations conjure moods and emotions that photographs cannot.
"The music is creative so why shouldn't the artwork be?" - Bethany Vanderputten
Bethany's luminous, texture-rich illustrations work well for a range of applications... from album art and packaging, to websites, concert merchandise and marketing, and more.
Bethany believes that forward-looking music celebrities are looking for new kinds of visual identities. Her paintings have drama, depth, mystery and complexity, reflecting the music and the musicians themselves. Like the songs that inspire them, these are artworks that grow and take on meaning over time.
