New pastel portraits by American singer Bob Dylan will go on show for the first time at London’s National Portrait Gallery next month, the gallery said on Monday.

The 12 new works in the “Bob Dylan Face Value” exhibition in September represent the latest portrait studies from the “Blowin’ in the Wind” singer who has sketched and drawn since childhood, but only began exhibiting six years ago.

The portraits represent characters, with an amalgamation of features Dylan has collected from life, memory, and his imagination and fashioned into people, some real and some fictitious.
