Bob Dylan is bringing his vision of American landscapes and urban scenery to central London with a new collection of his art.

The exhibition, which opens at the Halcyon Gallery next month, features images of downbeat motels, forgotten fairgrounds and American landmarks including The Green River, which runs through Wyoming and Utah.

The Times They Are A-Changin' singer, who has sold more than 110 million records and played thousands of gigs in a career that has lasted more than half a century, has produced paintings and drawings since the early 1960s.

The Beaten Path collection is made up of Dylan's drawings, watercolours and acrylic works of iconic images from his travels across America.

Earlier this month Dylan controversially became the first musician to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.

His win was praised by literary figures and critics, with a leading academic hailing him as the Tennyson of our times. However, Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh labelled it an "ill conceived nostalgia award".

The Beaten Path will open on November 5 at the Halcyon Gallery and run until December 11.
