Billy Connolly Makes Art Debut

  • Posted 79 months Ago

The Scottish comedian Billy Connolly has turned his hand to contemporary art and has opened an exhibition of pen and ink drawings at Castle Galleries called Born on a Rainy Day. Speaking about the exhibition, which has taken him two years to compile, Connolly said:

"Art, for me, bears no relation to comedy or music. My art is pure and 'unjudged'. I am creating it for myself it is personal and private whereas with a film, comedy show or music you expect people to be critiquing, watching, assessing. Art is different; it liberates you."
