American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan may be a legend in the music world, but he's also well-known in art circles as a prolific creator of sketches and watercolors.

"I paint mostly from real life," he said in an interview. "It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind-the-curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work."

Dylan's work has been so well-received that exhibits have popped up in major art galleries in Denmark, Germany, London and New York City. Most recently, a museum in Israel announced a new exhibit of Dylan's life called "Forever Young," after one of his famous songs. The museum worked with Dylan's manager to collect film, rare photographs and dozens of pieces of music.
