Lennon drawings coming to Denmark

A collection of drawings by John Lennon are to be exhibited for the first time in Denmark.

Yoko Ono has announced that some 100 pieces, depicting the Beatle’s life with his friends and family, will be on display at the Hotel Crowne Plaza, Copenhagen Towers.

Before The Beatles became a worldwide pop sensation, Lennon went to art school in Liverpool, and apparently harboured dreams of being recognised as an artist until his death in 1980.

Some of the drawings are from Ono’s private collection, and several have been coloured by her.

“They give pleasure and show people what a great artist he was. All artists want recognition, and we didn’t draw anything specifically to put it away and forget it,” Ono told Kulturen on News.

“Artists want to communicate and John can communicate even now, so I am doing what he wanted to do,” she added.
