Sir Paul's art work has been selected to be displayed at the Royal Academy's 233d Summer Exhibition. The senior hanger for this year's exhibition is none other than '60s pop art hero Peter Blake, designer of that famous Sergeant Pepper album cover. The work of other guest artists such as the late Ian Dury, Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes To Hollywood and the Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood will also be exhibited. Peter Blake's selection is based on his friendship and his admiration of these artists:
"They are musicians who take painting very seriously. When I had my show at the National Gallery, Ronnie Wood came along, and I've looked at Paul's work for 20 years, even though he's been very hesitant to show it until recently."
The Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition opens on Tuesday, June 5 and will run through Monday, August 13.
