An exhibition of Bob Dylan's paintings is opening this weekend

Bob Dylan recently stirred up a debate about whether song lyrics count as literature, by winning a Nobel Prize in that field. But now an exhibition of his art is coming, like a rolling stone, to London.

Mayfair-based Halcyon Gallery will be showing a selection of his paintings, drawings and metal sculptures tomorrow. Look out for empty highways, skyscrapers, bridges and street scenes. The general vibe is one of the restless nomad, wandering from place to place, recording scenes of American life. Not surprising, given Dylan's general peripatetic lifestyle – he's been on his 'never-ending tour' since the late '80s. Our verdict? Well... you can see why he won the Nobel prize for his words. Let's leave it at that.

But to those eager Dylan fans who might be visiting the gallery on the off-chance the 75-year-old legend might be hanging out there, don't get your hopes up. He's currently Stateside. The gallery say they hope he'll be able to pop in at some point – maybe on the way to collecting his prize at the Nobel Prize award ceremony in Stockholm. 

Bob Dylan: The Beaten Path is on display at Halcyon Gallery until Dec 11.
