While Dylan has been a committed visual artist for more than four decades, The Drawn Blank Series will cast a vibrant new light on the singular creativity of one of the world’s most important and influential cultural figures. Limited to editions of only 295 worldwide these stunning graphics are set to take the art world by storm upon release.
Based on drawings and sketches made by Dylan while on the road from 1989 to 1992, the watercolour and gouache paintings in The Drawn Blank Series were created by Dylan during 2007 and visually echo the stylistic hallmarks of Dylan’s prose, poetry and music. Just as Dylan’s songs are constantly reinvigorated and rediscovered through his live performances, these limited edition graphics revisit images and scenes with a wide range of variety and creativity.
Commenting on the collection, Samantha Jackson, marketing director of Washington Green Fine Art Publishing, said: “This is an incredible and unique opportunity to view and acquire a limited edition graphic from the critically acclaimed body of work by Bob Dylan. For those people lucky enough to buy one of his graphics they will not only own a magnificent piece of art, but also a little piece of history. The art not only gives us an insight into the soul and imagination of Dylan the artist, but also Dylan the man. We are incredibly proud to launch this unique collection of limited edition graphics in the UK .”
The Drawn Blank Series has resulted in a collection which is at once a significant independent achievement and a fascinating extrapolation of themes and images which haunt his music.
