Say "Goodbye, 2012!" with New AOL Artists Canvases

With the New Year underway, it's time to bid farewell to 2012. AOL Artist Andy Rementer created the new canvas, "Goodbye, 2012," to commemorate and memorialize the past year. Additionally, he created an exclusive canvas for the AOL Artists site, "Hello, 2013!," celebrating what's to come in the new year.
Andy Rementer's colorful quirky illustrations have been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Apartamento Magazine and Creative Review. We first fell in love with Andy's work at the end of 2011 when he created all of the Kiehl's holiday branding.

We are thrilled to welcome Andy Rementer to the AOL Artists community and his works to our collection. To download these canvases and view other artist's works, visit AOL Artists.
