Ronnie Wood was born in 1947 into a musical and artistic family. Ronnie showed a creative flair at a young age & his brothers chipped in to buy him an acoustic guitar. At the age of 14, he purchased his first electric model.

Ronnie’s love of music went hand in hand with a love of drawing and sketching that took him into his teens and to attending Ealing College of Art in London. Other notable musicians such as Freddie Mercury of Queen and Pete Townshend of the Who also attended that college in the 1960s. British art schools were then, a melting pot for the new rock ‘n’ roll and rhythm & blues scenes.

Wood’s musical career progressed as he joined The Jeff Beck Group, The Faces and then, since from 1974 – The Rolling Stones. Throughout this time, Ronnie continued his painting and drawing. His subject range includes musicians he admired, knew and sometimes played with, to family and close friends, to causes he feels passionate about. For Ronnie, (who counts Damien Hirst amongst his confidants), art is a conduit for musical experience. The self-described “noise” his art evokes can be felt in each confident sweep & natural gift for colour teamed with his effortless transition between styles.

Ronnie has quickly become one of the most collectible living artists of the 20th century having amassed a very large number of avid collectors worldwide & holding several exhibitions in Europe, Japan, and the United States.
