Bob Dylan

3 11 2013

I did not expect to be writing about Bob Dylan. I’m sure the guy is sick of hearing people thank him for the influence he has had on their lives. But he’ll never read this. So. Thanks. I knew he painted. I think a couple of his album covers have his work on. But I stumbled upon some other exhibitions he’s had. Well, I couldn’t help myself. When I started this blog I had promised myself to stick to work that was related either to surrealism or collage work. Dylan’s isn’t. But after looking at his work, check out Van Gogh’s stuff. Not that Dylan is Van Gogh’s equal as a visual artist but the similarities seem pretty obvious to me.

Dylan vs. Warhohl

30 01 2012

We had a film festival in University. Imagine that. And one of the films was a Warhohl. 12 hours or so long. Of the Empire State Building. There was no seating after the first five minutes. 12 hours of watching a building. From up high. From another tall building. Well here we have a shorter version. 3 minutes or so of a young Bob Dylan. Its a screen test. I think Dylan flunked. So if you have a few extra minutes in your life, try watching it. Actually Dylan is very watcheable. And he’s not as tall as the Empire State Building.





Must be Santa…

This is my favourite Christmas video. If you haven’t seen it you’re in for a treat. Is the kid that is trying to get away, Jakob Dylan. Sure looks like him.





album covers as art

18 09 2011

Album covers are held in great regard by many people. Most are just posters of their idol’s face. But there are many that are surreal in quality or are collages. The first collage I remember being affected by was Sargeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. And soon thereafter or about the same time. I cannot recall exactly was a Bob Dylan album. Bringing It All Back Home. Very few album covers are art. Of course those who idolize the singers cannot see this. Elvis had such nice teeth. Dylan nice hair. And the Rolling Stones… shoes. Here is a brief collection of some of my favourites. Covers. Actually I only like the two album covers I mentioned but that’s a bit boring. So let’s pretend. Look through your own collection. You’re going to find some pretty awful stuff.

There are two short videos on his work. Both about exhibitions in Europe.

And finally there is Bruce Springsteens introduction of  Dylan to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. I hope Bruce does as good a job on my inclusion in the hall.
