Ronnie Wood was born in 1947 in Middlesex, England, into a musical and artistic family. Before beginning his musical career he received formal art training at Ealing College of Art, London. Throughout the years, the artist and the musician have been inseparable. As his musical career progressed, Ronnie continued his passion for painting and drawing; his subjects ranging from band members and musicians he admired, knew and sometimes played with, to family and close friends’ and of course, the self-portrait. It is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar, drawing portraits of contemporaries and finding inspiration from his musical influences.

Wood is a well known visual artist. When he was a child his drawings were featured on the BBC television programme Sketch Club; he won one of that programme’s competitions, an achievement he refers to as his “awakening to art.” He went on to train at the Ealing Art College, as both his brothers had. Other notable musicians, Freddie Mercury of Queen and Pete Townshend of the Who, also attended in the 1960s.

Wood’s paintings, drawings and prints frequently feature icons of popular culture and have been exhibited all over the world. He did the cover artwork to Eric Clapton’s 1988 box set Crossroads. Several of his paintings, including a work commissioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber, are displayed at London’s Drury Lane Theatre. Art critic Brian Sewell has called Wood “an accomplished and respectable artist”; and the South Bank Show has devoted an entire program to his artwork. Liberty & Co. has produced a clothing line using fabrics printed with Wood’s art. Wood has maintained a long-standing relationship with the San Francisco Art Exchange, which first exhibited his work in 1987. Wood is also the co-owner (along with sons Jamie and Tyrone) of a London art gallery called Scream.
