Bob Dylan, music legend and Nobel laureate, is also a prolific painter whose works depicting the landscapes and culture of the US are now the focus of a major London exhibition.

Around 200 paintings by the US singer-songwriter, produced by the 75-year-old in the last two years, are on show from Saturday at the Halcyon Gallery in the British capital's plush Mayfair district.

The collection of oil Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade , acrylic and watercolour paintings reveals a different side to Robert Allen Zimmerman, an icon of 20th century US popular music, whose poetic lyrics earned him the Nobel Prize for literature last month, to much surprise.

Dylan announced last week that he would travel to Stockholm to receive the prize, making the timing of this exhibition all the more apt.

"It's a great honor for us hosting the exhibition and for him to have received that honour at the same time Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade 2017 ," Paul Green, president of the Halcyon Gallery, told AFP.

Dylan began exploring the visual arts in the early 1960s. He designed the cover of the 1968 album Music from Big Pink by Canadian roots-rock group The Band. More recently, his works have been exhibited in Milan and New York.

"Dylan has been passionate about art since he first moved to New York and was taken by his girlfriend Suze Rotolo around museums," said Green.

Since then he has not stopped painting Mens Jordans 6 Retro Gatorade , using his numerous tours to sketch out the homeland which he describes so often in his songs.

The exhibition, entitled The Beaten Path, retraces the singer's travels across the four corners of the US, from its supercities to its immense expanses of desert.

"The common theme of these works having something to do with the American landscape - how you see it while criss-crossing the land," Dylan explains in a written introduction to the exhibition.

In San Francisco Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Sizes 12 , Dylan chose to paint a seafood seller in Chinatown, rather than the city's endless Victorian houses or its skyscrapers.

One of the standout works of the exhibition shows an "endless highway" - a clear allegory of the artist's life: always on the road, between two towns, two hotels.

"This is the largest painting that Dylan has ever undertaken, it's monumental on every scale Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Cheap ," said Green.

NAIROBI, March 30 (Xinhua) -- Athletics legend Paul Tergat has thrown his hat into the ring and will be vying to lead the Kenya's Olympic committee in the national election scheduled for May 5.

Tergat, a two time Olympic silver medallist, has taken off the lid over his plans saying he no longer sees the current team as best to carry the country forward. The National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) is currently headed by another legend Kipchoge Keino.

"I have worked hard to represent this great country at international championships against all odds. I have earned my spot and I believe time has finally come for me to take the mantle and lead our sports to greater success," said Tergat here on Thursday.

Tergat, who is also a five-time World Cross Country champion, said he will focus on improving the welfare of the athletes and all sportsmen.

"I want to take a big role in leading our sports. We have good talent, but they need to be mentored and guided properly and that will be a challenge am ready to take," he said.

However, Tergat will not be facing a simple battle. If his battles with Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie on the track is anything to go by, then the duel with Keino will be brutal.

The former world marathon record holder (2.04.54) will bring in new imputes in the management of sports in the country and work hard on improving the performance of Kenya on the global stage.

Kenya was placed fifth overall at the last Olympics in Rio winning seven medals all from athletics.

However, Tergat has pledged to diversify his support to other disciplines in order to increase Kenya's competitiveness at the Olympics.

He hopes his candidacy will bring unity in the sports industry, improve cohesion and regain athletes trust on management of their affairs, which has been lacking.

"I have watched from the periphery as the management of Nock has struggled and mishandled the affairs of our sportsmen. At times, I have played peripheral role just to ensure that the interests of athletes are taken care of. I want a central role to be in charge and direct this country forward," said Tergat.

His announcement comes just days after NOCK incumbent officials, under pressure, agreed to adopt a new constitution fronted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to avoid a ban.
