Ronnie Wood, bassist for the Rolling Stones, is selling his artwork on his time with the band which he first joined in 1976.

Wood, who is 68, was a talented artist in his youth and considered perusing a career in art before turning to music, for which he is now renowned, gaining a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland Ohio.

The paintings, all signed by the star, take a look into his life while part of the band throughout the 1970’s and 80’s.

Before joining the Stones, he attended art school at Ealing Art school in London in the 1960’s, his collection will go up for sale at Castle Fine Art in Leeds today.

 

Gallery manager Roy Pritchard said: “Ronnie Wood and his fellow Stones band members continue to draw the crowds, “the band’s popularity is only growing with their hugely successful 2016 AMÉRICA LATINA OLÉ tour”, and the recently opened ‘Exhibitionism’ at the Saatchi Gallery.

“Castle Fine Art is offering the public the chance to own their very own piece of rock and roll history with this new collection of works from Ronnie Wood’s personal archive, all hand signed by the artist himself”.

“The ‘Private Collection’ is eminently desirable and highly collectible – it will draw the eye of all who happen upon it. This pictorial journey through the annals of rock and roll is a joy to behold.”
