Self Portrait by Ronnie Wood
Before beginning his musical career, Rolling Stones Guitarist Ronnie Wood received formal art training at Ealing College of Art, London. According to his website, the artist and the musician have been inseparable throughout the years, and it is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar. His subjects include fellow musicians and band members, family and close friends, as well as animals and landscapes. Over the years Ronnie Wood’s artwork has been widely exhibited. In 1996 he had a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo, Brazil, and he has had exhibitions in North and South America, in the Far East and throughout Europe.
