[lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] will exhibit new paintings at the  National Gallery of Denmark – Statens Museum for Kunst this September.

Dylan’s ‘Brazil Series’ includes 40 paintings and 8 drawings will be displayed September 4 –  January 30.  None of the paintings have been exhibited before and this is the first time Dylan has exhibited large-scale paintings.

“I chose Brazil as a subject because I have been there many times and I like the atmosphere,” Dylan’s states in a museum document.

The subjects range from wine growers, gypsies, politicians, gamblers, and gangsters. 

ArtDaily describes Dylan’s process:

Bob Dylan the visual artist demonstrates phenomenal powers of observation. Effortlessly removing himself from the limelight, he depicts everyday life in its mundane and extreme incarnations – soberly and with a superior sense for the potential offered by painting as a medium. Most of the motifs were first hastily sketched in pencils on whatever piece of paper happened to be at hand, whether a paper bag, a napkin, or a sketchpad. Back in his studio Dylan would then continue work on the chosen motifs on canvases. The process adds a strong narrative element to the paintings, another feature which marks a radical departure from the frozen instants typically seen in his earlier watercolours.
