Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood will open up an art exhibit in London later this month showcasing his artwork.
The Ronnie Wood Collection art exhibit will start on December 12 for private viewing and will open to the public between December 13-15 at 71 Blandford Street, Marylebone.
Visitors will have the chance to view some of Rolling Stones guitarist’s finest paintings, new works that have never been shown in public before, and featuring a series of limited edition signed, numbered prints.
Wood will only be present at the invite-only on Thursday. The musician will recreate his art studio on the Marylebone Gallery floor, making a “rare live painting appearance over the weekend.”
“I’m always looking for new inspiration for my art. Colour fills my life. Even the decoration in my homes is a riot of colour. I paint the walls, everything, and I’ve even turned some of my art into mosaics for our bathroom.
“I’ve turned paintings into carpets, stained glass and bronzes, and have collaborated on marine chronometers for Bremont and even a Rolls-Royce Wraith.
“Liberty and Co has used my paintings to create scarves, bags and clothes. I’ve done art for albums, including the cover of an Eric Clapton album, and I do the Stones’ setlists as little works of art. Art fills my life, art is my life and art will continue to be my life.”
On related news, Wood released his album Ronnie Wood With His Wild Five – Mad Lad: A Live Tribute To Chuck Berry last month recorded at Wimborne’s Tivoli Theatre in 2018 – including guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters.
