"I apply musical theory to my art. I build up limited edition silk screen prints in much the same way as studio overdubs, the more defined ones are the things that stand out in the mix."
Though best known as the lead guitarist for the Rolling Stones, you’re as likely to find Ronnie Wood creating a portrait sketch with charcoal and paper as working on a song with guitar in hand.
Born in England in 1947, Wood is the youngest child in a family that was both musical and artistic. He grew up surrounded by the music of the great jazz legends and was strongly influenced by his father, who played in a 24-piece band. At the age of nine, he made his own musical debut, playing washboard with his brother in their skiffle band.
He received formal art training at Ealing College of Art, and has continued painting, drawing, and printmaking for over 35 years. Throughout his musical career—first as a member of the Jeff Beck Group, then the Faces, and since 1975 the Rolling Stones—Wood continued painting and drawing, his subjects ranging from self-portraits to musicians to family and close friends (including the Stones, as a group and individually).
Wood has captured in many mediums legendary Rock n’ Roll, Pop, and Rhythm & Blues performers including Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, EricClapton, John Lennon, and Madonna—all friends or admired colleagues. He knows his subjects well, often having performed with them on stage or in the studio.
