Dean Russo on the cleats of New England Patriots player!

Dec 05, 2016

We are so excited for our artist, Dean Russo. The one thing in the entire world he loves more than creating his colorful deigns is: dogs. This week he got to share his love for rescue dogs with the world as his art was featured on the cleats of NFL star, Logan Ryan.

The New England Patriots player approached Dean about doing a design for charity. Dean has always had a soft spot in his heart for all animals so once Dean heard the cleats would be auctioned off for rescued dogs he whipped his paint right out and began creating. Dean says: “Pit bulls are a misunderstood breed, and I’m just happy to be able to get the message about animal rescue out there.

Sunday (December 4) during week 13 of the NFL season players all from many teams wore custom cleats that reflect their commitment to the charitable cause of their choice. More than 500 players participated in the league’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign. This initiative is a culmination of 18 months of collaborative work between the NFL and players across the league.

Many players shared their custom cleats on social media platforms with the hash tag #mycausemycleats. Every cleat tells a story. Logan’s story is all about rescuing pitbulls. The proceeds of his cleats will go to The Pittie Stop Rescue, Inc. which is a nonprofit, all foster home-based, rescue. Their goal is not only to find the best home for the dogs in their care, but also the best fit for potential adopters. Their hope is to create and expand a support system for each other- for their volunteers, fosters, adopters and the rescue community

After the game, the cleats will be auctioned off and 100% of proceeds will go to the charity!

A Visit to Dean Russo's Studio

May 31, 2016

On Monday May 16, Matt snuck out of Surtex, hopped in a cab and headed to Brooklyn. He was off to see our artist, Dean Russo. Dean’s studio is in the iconic Industry City Studios. They were having an open house where visitors were able to tour the studios full of painters, photographers, printmakers, sculptors, video artists, etc. The passionate and diverse tenants are integral components of the ecosystem of Industry City. The artists are able to flourish in a creative and encouraging environment.

After a 20 minute cab ride, Matt stepped out onto the energetic streets of Brooklyn. He walked into the Industry City Studios and was greeted by various artists. He went straight to Dean’s studio so he could get inside the workspace of the creative genius.

Matt got a tour of the colorful space and learned techniques that Dean uses to create his unique masterpieces (trade secrets, of course). Matt says that it was truly amazing to see the paintings come to life, not to mention a sneak peek of what he is working on!

Together, Matt and Dean, bounced ideas around for new images and upcoming licensing projects. You will not believe some of the ideas they cooked up!  You will see lots of these amazing pieces on our website in the near future.

Dean’s bright and colorful images are sure to brighten anyone’s day. To see all of his vibrant images, click here.

Color lovers rejoice- colorful art perfect for every product!

Apr 10, 2016

With 2016 being an election year, there has been a lot of negativity in the air, causing a lot of stress in American lives. With political attack ads on TV, political debates and updates on social media and on the news it is incredibly difficult to escape this mayhem during this election season.

One way to combat the negativity is to escape reality and enjoy a bright and colorful piece of art. The bright color trend can be seen on all products- from wall décor, to apparell,  to shower curtains, to puzzles and paint by numbers (and everything in between) … the market is craving cheerfulness.

  

At Art Licensing we have several artists who provide beautiful, colorful art that makes you happy when you see it. With a variety of subjects (like dogs, cats, birds, typography, and abstract) we are able to provide manufactures of all types with the art they need to make your home a happy home!

         

  

      

  

We have all types of vivid color mediums: like HDR photography (Celebrate Life Gallery and Michael Blanchette), adult coloring (Hello Angel), photorealistic animals (William Vanderdasson), semi-photrealistic animals (Jenny Newland), pop art (Dean Russo, Howie Green, Dawgart and Steve Kaufman) as well as the traditional “Neiman style,” like Richard Wallich.

We are so excited to tell you about one of our many licensing projects with Brooklyn, NY based artist: Dean Russo! Art Licensing International has teamed up with The Mountain (out of Keene, NH) to develop a Dean Russo Line of T-Shirt (and some other apparel items like hats and socks). The Mountain has created a very clever propriety T-shirt hang box that uniquely displays Dean's artwork that is featured on their silk screen shirts (example attached). This line has been a tremendous seller for The Mountain.

Art and animals (particularly rescue dogs and cats) are two passions that define Dean. He uses vibrant Pop Art colors and bold abstract patterns to give a voice to his favorite subject: animals. Dean Russo’s fun and colorful images apply to people of all ages and demographics.

People love his pet images as well his celebrities, travel monuments, and wild life images. Not only do his images work for the T-shirt program, but they are also placed with numerous manufacturers for wall décor, mugs, puzzles, coasters, magnets and many more products!

Nov 13, 2014

We have some extremely exciting news pertaining to Art Licensing's award winning artist, Dean Russo! To date we have placed over 100 licenses in a multitude of product categories. We have been working diligently to "Brand" Dean Russo in multiple market places.
