Ronnie Wood

 

BIOGRAPHY:

A two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (with the Rolling Stones and the Faces), Ronnie Wood has played in some of the most influential rock groups of all time and guested with a who’s who of British music. Though best known as an icon of rock and roll, Wood started as an artist. Before beginning his musical career, he received formal art training at Ealing College of Art, London, and has since enjoyed a remarkable parallel career as a highly regarded artist.

Wood's paintings, drawings and prints frequently feature icons of popular culture and have been exhibited all over the world. He did the cover artwork to Eric Clapton's 1988 box set Crossroads. Throughout the years, the artist and the musician have been inseparable. As his musical career progressed, Ronnie continued his passion for painting and drawing; his subjects ranging from band members and musicians he admired, knew and sometimes played with, to family and close friends' and of course, the self-portrait. It is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar, drawing portraits of contemporaries and finding inspiration from his musical influences.

Several of his paintings, including a work commissioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber, are displayed at London's Drury Lane Theatre. Art critic Brian Sewell has called Wood "an accomplished and respectable artist"; and the South Bank Show has devoted an entire program to his artwork. Liberty & Co. has produced a clothing line using fabrics printed with Wood's art. Wood has maintained a long-standing relationship with the San Francisco Art Exchange, which first exhibited his work in 1987. Wood is also the co-owner (along with sons Jamie and Tyrone) of a London art gallery called Scream.
