'I was just drawing whatever I felt like drawing, whenever I felt like doing it. The idea was always to do it without affectation or self-reference, to provide some kind of panoramic view of the world as I was seeing it at the time.’
Bob Dylan is a worldwide cultural icon who has been inspiring audiences for six decades. Since 1961 he has released 38 studio albums and performed for millions of people across the world. Dylan’s music defies formal definition. Iconic songs such as ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ (1963), ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ (1965), and ‘Tangled Up In Blue’ (1975) have altered the course of cultural history, proving that popular music can be great art.
Having forever changed the relationship between music and language, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016, recognised ‘for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.’ Finding inspiration in social and political injustice, poetry, literature, art, metaphysics, the endless varieties of love and loss, and music of all kinds, Dylan has produced an astonishing catalogue of songs that speak to the hearts of people everywhere, whether the songs were composed last week or fifty years ago.
Dylan has been producing visual art since the early 1960s, creating an expansive body of work spanning all mediums; drawings, painting, and sculpture and has exhibited at galleries and museums worldwide, most recently at the Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai (2019/20) and the Today Art Museum, Beijing (2020).
