DescriptionBob Dylan's Epic song recorded in 1965 has been brought to life into the form of a fine art painting. Every detail has been thoughtfully constructed from the original song lyrics. Not a character or mentioned element has been left out of this one-of- a-kind piece. Notice Bob and his Lady 'look out tonight from Desolation Row'. He still has the letter and the doorknob is his hand from the final verse of the song. Many other elements of Bob Dylan's career have also been represented throughout the art piece. From his crashed Triumph motorcycle to his obvious Heaven's Door depiction. Mr. Tambourine Man and the Diplomat with his Siamese cat on his back, just to name a few. A historical piece of art for any Bob Dylan and Desolation Row fan.
Shane Balkowitsch, Bismarck, ND Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement My name is Shane Balkowitsch and I have collaborated with artist Theo Cobb to bring to life my vision of the epic song Desolation Row by Bob Dylan. After doing and exhaustive search we believe this has never been depicted before. The process took over 2 years to finally complete. The Original piece of Art is 48" by 24" in size and is an oil painting on canvas. Hundreds of hours of research, sketching and rendering have been put into this piece and any Bob Dylan fan who knows the song will surely appreciate the scope of this piece.
