BAFTA nominated actor, comedian, musician and presenter, Billy Connolly CBE unveiled the results of a five-year foray into the world of contemporary art with the launch of Born on a Rainy Day, a collection of six limited edition pieces created and signed by the star of Mrs Brown and The Last Samurai. The collection took Billy two years to create and comprises a series of thought-provoking pen and ink drawings, based on characters from the Glaswegian comedian’s imagination.
"Art, for me, bears no relation to comedy or music. My art is pure and un-judged. I am creating it for myself - it is personal and private whereas with a film, comedy show or music you expect people to be critiquing, watching, assessing. Art is different; it liberates you."
