Bob Dylan Paints the American Landscape In A New London Exhibition
Bob Dylan isn’t just a Nobel prize winning singer-songwriter, he’s also an artist. In the sense that he’s a painter and sculptor. Bill Clinton owns one of his metalworks. A new exhibition, The Beaten Path, of Dylan’s art—sketches, paintings in acrylic and watercolors, ironworks—is currently on show at London’s Halcyon Gallery.
The show has been in production for the last two years with the theme of the American landscape, and they are landscapes that are altogether Dylan. Spread across three floors and numbering a few hundred works, they explore Americana in major cities, in middle America, on the backroads, motels, places off the beaten track that the title references.
