In light of recent events like Bob Dylan winning the Noble Prize for Literature. I thought it was time to celebrate that incredible feat by creating a pastel on paper of the talented man himself. This custom canvas took an overwhelming amount of time but the end result is what made the grueling process worth it. As many of you know, Bob Dylan is an American songwriter, singer, artist and writer. Some of his early songs like “Blowin’ In The Wind” and “The Times Are a-Changin’” have become anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements.
Dylan’s lyrics transformed the way pop music was back in the 1960s. His lyrics were so powerful and moving because they had an important message about politics, literary influences, social norms and philosophical ideas. Since 1994, Dylan has published six books of drawings and paintings, his work has been exhibited in multiple major art galleries. His talent doesn’t stop there, as a musician he’s sold over 100 million records dubbing him one of the best-selling artists of all time. In addition, he’s received an abundance of awards including a Golden Globe Award, an Academy Award and eleven Grammy Awards. Bob Dylan has transformed the way songwriting was done and was commended for it by President Barack Obama back in 2012, by receiving the Medal of Freedom.
Furthermore, he’s become such an important figure throughout history that it was only a matter of time that I created something to honor this milestone. I found a picture that appealed to me greatly and I thought this one would really show Bob Dylan’s true colors and potential so I went ahead and converted that photo to canvas.
