According to U.K. newspaper The Independent, the exhibit features re-workings of his photographs, including shots of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, by contemporary artists including Wyman's friend Gerald Scarfe, the creator of Pink Floyd's art work for The Wall.
Wyman has a catalog of 20,000 photos, and he says he began learning about art while spending time in France in the 1970s with artist Marc Chagall. "I met all these bloody great artists who are like gods -– Chagall, César, Arman -– and, although I was in awe of them they treated me as an equal. They thought I was an artist of music," Wyman recalls.
Of his return to the stage with his former band at their recent 50th anniversary shows, Wyman said his three teenage daughters -- ages 18, 17 and 14 -- were thrilled. "They'd been to Stones shows before but never seen me on stage with them, so that was kind of nice. I did get some quite rousing applause when I went on."
Now 76 years old, he will publish Bill Wyman's Scrapbook, a limited-edition coffee-table book featuring rare photos, in March.
