A COLLECTION of six limited edition prints by comedian and BAFTA nominated actor Billy Connolly has gone on show at Castle Galleries, in Cambridge.
Most of the artwork was created by Connolly when he was in New Zealand filming The Hobbit.
Anna Bligh, manager at Castle Galleries Cambridge, said: “Billy’s first venture into fine art met with critical acclaim, and we’re thrilled to work alongside him to publish and exhibit his second stunning collection.
“His faceless figures are now joined by wings, birds, a banjo – and the collection even includes a self-portrait. Self Portrait With High Horse is characteristically faceless, yet clearly identifiable as Billy by the trademark hair, goatee and glasses. We’re sure this piece in particular is set to make waves.”
The pieces in the collection are available to purchase from the gallery in St Andrew’s Street as a limited edition of 95 hand-signed, framed print starting from £625.
