It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (And Art): KYEO Meets… Ronnie Wood
When the average soul thinks of Ronnie Wood, his or her mind may wander to legendary tales and memories of his role in The Faces, The Jeff Beck Group and a 35 year reign as guitarist in arguably the biggest rock ‘n’ roll band of all time, The Rolling Stones.
What many music fans and curious tuned into Ronnie Wood’s spectacular hell-raising off the field antics sometimes fail to recognise, however, is the 64-year-old’s fierce passion for the visual arts and a lifelong dedication to painting and drawing his chaotic vision of the world.
Before beginning his musical career in the 1960s, Wood received formal training at Ealing College of Art and, throughout the years, the artist and the musician has produced an electric and intense collection of his whirlwind life and time on the road with a strutting, enigmatic Mick Jagger and rock’s greatest single body of riffs, Keith Richards.
KYEO caught up with the man himself at the unveiling of his new limited edition collection at the Castle Fine Art Gallery in Birmingham’s ICC to find out more about what really drives one of the world’s most creative minds.
The Famous Flames Suite and The Stones On Stage – Got Me Rockin’ collection is now visiting Castle Galleries throughout the UK.
