Dylan does Drawing
I've always found something intriguing about the popularity of visual art by celebrities (actors, singers etc.). Did you know that Bob Dylan drew? A gallery in Germany put together an exhibition of his work last year. I've only been able to find a few examples but they're not bad. Of course, being famous helps greatly in getting your work into a gallery and work will sell for that reason as well. I even discovered a blog dedicated to art by celebrities.
A really interesting aspect to the recent show of Dylan's work is that the curator asked Dylan to rework his drawings into paintings. I think I'll stick with his music.
Better art to come this week!
