Beatles, Stones and more in the Village

There's a wonderful corner down in the West Village which has three huge murals of art depicting different eras in music. I had posted the Jazz Era back in June of last year and for some reason missed this one for the 60s completely.

 

Have fun naming the stars in here!

 

The artist's name is Rico Fonseca .

 

........Rico has an outdoor gallery on the corner 3rd street and Mcdougal in New York City. He has been at this location for over thirty years and his work has become quite popular. Rico lives and works in New York City. His unique style of painting and drawing reflex's his experience's and his deep Imagination. Rico creates images of life and his experiences.

 

........Rico Fonseca was born in Peru to an impoverish Family, his father was a carpenter and his mother was seamstress. He came from a very poor village in Peru. When he was a very small boy his Mother died.

Rico was little different then the other boys he would stay home and draw when most boys his age would be outside paying. He talked about worldly subjects and drew pictures when ever he could.

 

........ Reco and his father did not get along, so Rico ran away from his home and lived in the streets of Peru. He made a living drawing pictures for tourist that would sit in the cafe's. Rico learned English by listening to tourist and watching American movies.
