John Lennon

Liverpool, United Kingdom, 1940 - New York, USA, 1980

Additional info:

Art was actually Lennon’s first love. He began drawing long before he had a guitar. He attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute for three years (1957-1960) before The Beatles became a full-time occupation. He continued to draw throughout his life. John’s primary medium was line drawing either in pen, pencil, or Japanese sumi ink. His drawings became illustrations for three best selling books: In His Own Write (1964), A Spaniard in the Works (1965) and Skywriting By Word of Mouth (1987). In addition, a complete suite of the ‘Bag One’ portfolio of lithographs was donated to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where it remains in the permanent collection. The graphic collection of John Lennon Artwork has traveled throughout the U.S., England, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong and Manila.
