Bob Dylan’s Buddhist monk

Music icon Bob Dylan has an exhibition of his paintings, Bob Dylan: The Asia Series, showcased at New York’s Gagosian Gallery now until October 22, 2011. Paintings included suggest an appreciation for Buddhism, like his oil painting The Monk (pictured), featuring a Buddhist monk in gassho. Read more on the exhibition here.

(Sean Michaels has written a piece in the UK’s The Guardian that suggests Dylan may have copied some of his paintings from the photographs of others. Read more here and here.)
