LONDON (Reuters) - An exhibition of art by Bob Dylan is to go on display in London for the first time.

The show, opening at London's Halcyon Gallery next month, features drawing and sketches made by Dylan while on the road from 1989 to 1992.

"This is an incredible opportunity for viewing this powerful body of work which gives an insight into the artist's soul," Halcyon Gallery President Paul Green said of The Drawn Blank Series.

Dylan, who has sold more than 110 million albums and performed thousands of shows around the world on his "never-ending tour," was recently awarded a special Pulitzer Prize for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture."
