About Bob Dylan

While legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan needs no introduction, his drawings, paintings, and silkscreen-on-canvas compositions are not nearly as well known as his music heard round the world. He has been making art since the 1960s, when he came on the scene as a young folk singer in Greenwich Village. Much of his work is generated out of his tours and reflects the impressions made upon him by the people and places he has encountered while bringing songs like “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Subterranean Homesick Blues” to audiences everywhere. Dylan’s “Drawn Blank” series, produced between 1989 and 1992 while touring America, Europe, and Asia, forms a large part of his output. These expressionistic drawings, and the paintings born out of them, include street and interior scenes, landscapes, portraits, nudes, and still lifes—images as poetic and personal as his music.

American, b. 1941
