He may be known as a legendary musician and member of the Rolling Stones, but it is as natural to find Ronnie with a pencil as with a guitar.
The classically trained artist studied at Ealing Art College and has mastered a range of genres, from abstract to landscapes and portraiture. He has sketched since he was a child, and takes inspiration from artists such as Egon Schiele, Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.
Varying his medium depending on the mood he wishes to evoke, Ronnie creates his original pieces in charcoals, oils, watercolours, spray paints, oil pastels and acrylics. His subjects range from band members and musicians he admires to close friends and self-portraits.
Ronnie says: “There is no kind of therapy like the one you have from starting a picture and then seeing it through to the end.”
Long before he found fame in one of the biggest rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time, Ronnie Wood was an artist. The Classic Collection features rare and previously sold-out works from the musician's past portfolio and private collections, cementing his reputation as one of this generation's most talked-about contemporary artists.
This season's issue includes a unique insight into our artists' and their studios, an exclusive interview with Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute® and - of course - a first look at all our autumn 2016 releases.
