Chrissie Hynde – Adding The Blue
“I always thought I would get into painting, but I got waylaid by rock ’n’ roll. Finally, I thought, ‘Now’s the time.’ As soon as I was in a situation where I could be alone and paint without any interruptions, I just couldn’t stop.” says Chrissie Hynde, the founding member of The Pretenders.   A selection of paintings were unveiled in a special exhibition at the After Nyne Gallery in London’s Notting Hill and is currently on its way to Franklin Bowles gallery in Soho New York from Saturday the 1st December.
 

The Limited edition book and fine art print set, and a hard book store addition are now available for you to enjoy the complete series of 200 original artworks ranging from oil canvas, still life studies and abstract compositions with her own personal account and interpretation of each thought provoking piece.

Ringo Starr – Another Day In The Life

The world renowned drummer of The Beatles, presents a private collection of unpublished photographs as he reflects back on his career and adventures with personal thoughts and commentary. ““I love taking photos of random things, and seeing how they all fit together. Whether it is at home or on the road, certain things catch my eye – and when I see something that interests me, that’s the emotion of it, and I want to capture it. I am a photographer as well as a musician.” says Ringo Starr.   Die hard fans will be able to re-experience some of the bands historic tours, and landmark moments including his return to the New York Plaza Hotel 50 years after The Beatles first visited the USA and the day he received his Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.
