"Dylan's paintings call to mind some of his album covers that feature his own artworks, such as The Bootleg Series Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait (1969–1971) and Planet Waves," said Zhang Hao, a Beijing-based rock musician who cites Dylan as a major influence.

Aside from appreciating Dylan's visual art creations, visitors can also step into the re-enacted Café Wha? in New York's Greenwich Village, where the 19-year-old from Minnesota wowed the audience with Woody Guthrie songs and embarked on a journey to global fame.

The exhibition runs until Oct 18.

If you go:

10:00-18:00, Tuesday to Sunday. Building 4, Pingod Community, No 32 Baiziwan Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-58760600 北京市朝阳区百子湾路32号苹果社区4号楼今日美术馆
