Bob Dylan, the recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is aiming to demonstrate he has a way with images as well as words with the opening of an exhibition of his latest artworks in London. The Beaten Path at Bond Street’s Halcyon Gallery features a collection of drawings, watercolours and acrylic works on canvas which depict the legendary singer-songwriter’s view of American landscapes and urban scenes.

Discussing the paintings in a recent interview, Dylan said: “At first, (they were) just a series of landscapes – landscapes without people. To me, that meant mountains, lakes, rivers, fields and so forth. Sometime later the idea expanded to include city façades, bridges, automobiles, streets and theatres. Anything outdoors.”

The show runs from November 5 to December 11. For more information, go here. Here’s a sneak preview of three of the paintings from the exhibition…
