On November 22nd the world of art and rock music comes together at the Kempinski Hotel Bahía in Estepona, Spain. The art on display is by two men better known for their music than their work with a paintbrush. Both studied art before joining hugely successful rock bands and selling millions of albums all over the world.


Brian Travers is the saxophonist of British reggae band UB40. With hits like Red Red Wine they sold 70 million records worldwide. Brian's painted the album cover for their latest record which celebrates the band's 40th anniversary. For The Many commemorates the survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.


The art of Dire Straits bassist, John Illsley, also features in the exhibition. John will unveil the cover of his soulful new album Beautiful You. The blue guitar in his painting echoes a charming throwback to the classic Dire Straits Brothers In Arms cover of a silver guitar floating in a blue sky.


Both artists have partnered with Dragon Art bringing together technology and art with the goal to make art more accessible and make buying art more secure. A friend of Brian and John's is Dragon founder, music and art-lover, Paul Moynan.
