Neil Young doesn’t just sing about painters — he’s also a painter himself. In his new
memoir, Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life & Cars, the musician shares watercolors and
prints, all depicting one of his greatest passions: cars.
Young’s artwork is also on display in an exhibit at Los Angeles’s Robert Berman Gallery,
now through the end of November. One of the paintings even serves as the cover art for
Young’s latest album, Storytone, which debuted this week:
Here are a few of the other works that illustrate Young’s memoir:
“I started with photographs, then I started thinking that photographs didn’t really go
anywhere — they’re just photographs,” Young told the Los Angeles Times about his foray
into painting. So he tested out some watercolor and charcoal paintings — and ended up
with around two dozen works illustrating his memoir.
