Ronnie Wood was born in England in 1947, the youngest child in a musical and creative family. He made his artistic debut at age nine, playing washboard with his brothers in their skiffle band and has never looked back. Before music became the major influence in his life, Ronnie received formal art training in England, at Ealing College of Art. Eventually, he became one of "The Faces" and as a "Rolling Stone", Ronnie Wood finally secured his unquestionable place in Rock n' Roll's Who's Who. As well as being a world class guitarist, Ronnie plays bass, drums, saxophone and pedal steel.
During his long career, Ronnie has had the opportunity to perform with many of his heroes, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan and the Corrs. He has released six albums on his own, including the critically acclaimed, "Not For Beginners".
Throughout the years, Ron Wood, the artist and musician have been inseparable. He has never stopped sketching - in dressing rooms, backstage, in recording studios, and at home with family and friends. Thus, he has also made his mark in the art world. His work has been showcased in one man exhibitions in Europe, North and South America, and Asia. Exhibitng works in various mediums including oil, charcoal, woodcuts, lithographs, etchings and drypoints, his shows include retrospectives at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art in San Paulo, Brazil in 1996 and at the Cleveland Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
Ronnie's artwork has been represented at Pop International Galleries in New York City since 1999. He regards the New York City gallery as "his home away from home" and looks forward to a long relationship with the gallery. He lives in London and Ireland, and plans to continue both careers with his usual energy.
