Artist of the moment…..Ronnie Woods

I am sure you associate the name Ronnie Woods with the legendary rock group the Rolling Stones, but he also a very talented painter and excellent draftsman. Ronnie Woods was born in the year 1947 in Middlesex, England. Upon looking at his work with the untainted eye of him being a celebrity, I was very impressed with his sense of design. With so much abundance of advertising and the advent of I-tunes, the artist and the public don’t pay attention to album covers as much as in years past. I love the Sargent Pepper album for the Beatles hit LP, but couldn’t tell you a cover that has blown my artistic mind since 2000.

Back in the 1960s an album was a key component to increasing album sales. Wood has a great eye for cropping the face of an artist but also for using his artistic eye to make a celebrity portrait that one can recognize easily. Wood is a great draftsman and draws the nude figure as well as he paints and draws the face.

For his artistic education Ronnie Wood attended the Ealing College of Art located in London.

One fan and collector of Ronnie Wood is former United States President Bill Clinton.
