World renowned Bob Dylan further makes his mark as an artist with ‘The Brazil Series’; a captivating set of works inspired by his travels to the South American country. Unveiled on Friday 15th May, the collection of limited edition prints will be on display at Castle Galleries in Manchester until Saturday 30th May. 


Universally acknowledged as one of the most culturally relevant innovators of today, Dylan shows his prowess as an accomplished artist, painting Brazilian scenes brimming with life and full of vibrant colour.


His subject matter steers clear of the nation’s impressive skylines and popular beaches, and instead celebrates the infamous favelas, the bustling markets and the young men of the working class. Dylan offers up the many faces of Brazil to intrigue and inspire the viewer, capturing moments he has stumbled upon, rather than sought out. His works invite us into the secret places of Brazil, back streets and houses where tourists would never normally go.


Following on from Dylan’s previous collection, ‘The Drawn Blank Series’, these new works offer an insight into Dylan’s nomadic existence which has characterised his life on the road for the last fifty years. ‘The Brazil Series’ charts Dylan’s fascination with the country, especially what he has seen off the beaten track in between his schedule of rehearsals and concerts.


Nicholas Beese, Castle Galleries, Manchester’s Gallery Manager, said: “’The Brazil Series is an interesting and exciting departure from ‘The Drawn Blank Series’, and really does capture Bob Dylan’s strength as an artist first and foremost.


“He paints the unexpected and elusive, elevating an image from a scene viewed as a passing glance or stolen moment to an enduring work of art. It really is an honour to have his work on display at the gallery for people to enjoy.”


The Brazil Series’ by Bob Dylan is on display at Castle Galleries in Manchester from Friday 15thMay until Saturday 30th May.

Each of the works are certificated and personally signed by Bob Dylan with the prints priced at £1,250.
