St. Petersburg, Florida – October 2, 2012 – The Clear Agency has commissioned Timothy Raines to create artwork for the 7th annual Gasparilla International Film Festival (GIFF).
Internationally renowned artist and abstract expressionist Timothy Raines has contracted with St Petersburg’s, CLEAR AGENCY to create the Gasparilla International Film Festival 7th annual creative theme.
Raines, is well known for his custom brand commissions. Luxury automobile builders including Aston Martin and consumer brands including Michelin and Lone Star beer flock to Raines for his unique sense of vision and abstract appeal. Earlier this year, Tim has been commissioned by the MLB (Major League Baseball) to complete 30 original paintings of MLB team logos to be displayed in the MLB New York City headquarters.
Raines recently relocated to Sarasota where he resides with his family and has plans pending to open a gallery location in downtown St Petersburg.
“Art and film will always be intertwined,” said Timothy Raines, “I’m pleased to get involved and create art that will have a lasting impression for this annual event.”
The Clear Agency is working with GIFF to provide strategic marketing and design services designed to increase awareness, attendance and sponsorship assistance for the week long festival. Their decision to tap Raines was strategic, citing the critical nature of not only the quality of art associated with the event but also for the promotional quality Raines presence will add for GIFF.
“Engaging Raines who is an important and relevant artist on this project communicates to filmmakers and festival attendees how culturally in touch the Tampa Bay community truly is.” said Jenn Greacen, Clear Agency Executive Director.
