Bob Dylan is getting a prestigious art exhibition in London. Works by the singer will be shown for the first time on Saturday (August 24) at the city's National Portrait Gallery.
The 12 pieces in the "Bob Dylan Face Value" exhibit represent the latest portrait studies from the singer who has sketched and drawn since childhood, but only began exhibiting six years ago.
Dylan's new sketches are a break from tradition for the gallery - which usually only displays portraits featuring British public subjects or British life.
A self-professed fan of the National Portrait Gallery, Dylan has been preparing his exhibition for two years.
