Had enough of celebrity art yet? Here in Lala-land, we've seen recent exhibitions and art projects by James Franco, Dennis Hopper, David Lynch and Frances Bean Cobain. (We also have Tim Burton at LACMA to look forward to.)

Well, here's one more. As various reports stated this week, Bob Dylan is preparing to unveil some of his latest artwork at the Statens Museum for Kunst in Denmark in September. The show will feature a number of paintings by Dylan with a Brazilian theme. The works depict scenes from favelas, or slums; street life; and the countryside.

According to reports, the Dylan exhibition will run Sept. 4 to Jan. 30 in Denmark and will feature 40 acrylic paintings and eight drawings.

The folks at Rolling Stone have recently posted some of Dylan's artwork online. Take a look at the photo gallery which features a cross section of some of the rock legend's paintings.
