BOB DYLAN, THE DRAWN BLANK SERIES 2010
29 New Bond Street, London W1S 2RL
Following worldwide critical acclaim and unprecedented demand for Bob Dylan’s The Drawn Blank Series, a newly-created collection from the artist will go on show on Saturday 22 May 2010. This 2010 collection from The Drawn Blank Series features brand new, limited edition graphics, each personally signed by Bob Dylan, taken from the drawings he created while on the road from 1989 to 1992.
The Fauves first used non-representational colour to convey different sensations – a technique that was used by Warhol during Dylan’s musical ascendency in the 1960s. Dylan’s Warhol-esque touches are now powerfully brought together in this generation of paintings – with richer tones, evocative shades and a depth that brings a great resonance and passion to his work. “Every picture spoke a different language to me as the various colours were applied,” Bob Dylan mused.
The collection will be unveiled and available to view in the gallery at 29 New Bond Street including a beautiful book illustrating the extraordinary collection from Bob Dylan. Each piece is published in a limited number of no more than 295 copies worldwide.
