A poet, songwriter, singer, and visual artist, Bob Dylan is one of the past century’s most iconic figures. A counterculture icon in the 1960s and 70s, his folk music became an anthem for American youth that fought for Civil Rights and supported an anti-war political agenda. His poetic and powerful lyrics made him the voice of his generation.
Bob Dylan was born in Duluth, Minnesota in 1941. He had started a few rock bands in high school, and after his graduation played with Little Richard and Bobby Vee. By 1961, he had dropped out of College at the University of Minnesota and moved to New York. There, he performed at numerous clubs and played in studio for many recording artists before being signed to Columbia Records. His musical career featured hit songs including “The Times they are a-changing”, “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Blowin’in the Wind.” He has won ten Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Pullitzer Prize, and the Nobel Peace Prize.
Dylan’s visual art was featured on several album covers, but his first stand-alone art was published in a 1994 book of drawings, Drawn Blank. His first art show was in 2007 at Kunstsammlungen in Chemnitz, Germany and it showcased numerous watercolors and gouaches. In addition to painting, Dylan has also created a serious of iron gates named “Mood Swings” that he debuted in a 2013 show at Halcyon Gallery in London. He is best known for his landscape and nature paintings.
It is virtually impossible to overstate Bob Dylan’s monumental impact on popular culture. His music provided the soundtrack for much of the historically pivotal 1960s and 70s. Today, his career has found resurgence as a visual artist, with his artwork appealing far beyond fans of his music.
