The Brazil Series 2015
This series is an interesting departure from The Drawn Blank graphics and is a product of Bob Dylans bravery as an artist. Never wanting to remain static in a single form of expression, Dylan is constantly experimenting and testing new artistic techniques. His life on the road has dictated his nomadic existence for the last fifty years. He is indigenous to everywhere and nowhere, a member of the global community, a child of the world. In short; no roots, incredible wings.
In an overarching sense, The Brazil Series is contextually relevant to understand both Bob Dylans roots as an artist and his vision for how he would like his portfolio to develop. Here we see an artist who looks beyond the prosaic, ever searching for an angle, a point of difference, the unexpected and elusive, to elevate an image from a scene viewed as a passing glance or stolen moment, to an enduring work of art. Therein lies the skill of Bob Dylan as an artist.
