We mentioned Bob Dylan's career as an artist a few years back but the musician's first ever show of his works on canvas will open on Saturday February 13 at the Halycon Gallery in London. The new work represents his artistic journey from the drawings in The Drawn Blank Series to works on paper and now finally to canvas. The Drawn Blank Series of drawings and sketches were also gathered into a book.
The paintings are based on drawings and sketches made while he was on the road during the period of 1989 - 1992. In a press release Dylan said of his own work, "I just draw what's interesting to me, and then I paint it" and says that he can find inspiration anywhwere. His work, which includes both landscapes and personal scenes, contains some of the same everyday poetry aspect that his songs also capture. The show will run through April 10.
