Music on the Page: Bob Dylan Paints

So not only is Bob Dylan one of the greatest songwriters to ever live, he also paints, which makes him one of the few remaining Renaissance men (one of the others is Clint Eastwood – I love him).

From Sept. 4 to Jan. 30 of next year, Dylan’s paintings will be on display at the Statens Museum for Kunst National Gallery of Denmark. “Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series” is made up of 40 canvases portraying Brazilian scenes. As Dylan explains on the gallery website, “this exhibition is an accurate reflection of his endeavors as a visual artist; an area of work which has received increasingly intensive focus from the artist himself in recent years.”

Dylan made these works specifically for the Denmark gallery. To view more of his works, click here.

    Kel, Bob Dylan kind of paints like you but in darker colors. So cool…
