Bob Dylan Paintings to be Exhibited
by Matthew Perpetua
A series of drawing and paintings by Bob Dylan made during his travels in Asia will be exhibited at the Gagosian Gallery in Manhattan beginning on September 20th. The exhibit, titled The Asia Series, will run through October 22nd and feature works the rock icon created while in Japan, China, Vietnam and South Korea, presumably while he toured those nations earlier this year.
According to the Gagosian Gallery, many of Dylan’s works in the series are “firsthand depictions of people, street scenes, architecture and landscape,” while others are “cryptic paintings often of personalities and situations.” This will be Dylan’s first exhibition of paintings in New York City, though his work has been shown in Chemnitz, Germany and at the Statens Museum in Copenhagen.
