13 Nov 2014 - 28 Feb 2015

K-Coyne.jpgAn exhibition of over 50 paintings and drawings by Kevin Coyne will be exhibited at Déda, in Kevin's home city of Derby.

Work will also be shown at the University of Derby (21 November to 6 February).

Kevin Coyne (1944 – 2004) was an important player in the contemporary music scene in the late 1960s and '70s and became a cult figure thereafter.

Alongside his prodigious musical output (over 40 albums in his lifetime) he continued to paint, draw and write throughout his life and the exhibition will cover all facets of an amazingly fertile creative force. His colourful paintings and drawings cover a huge range of subjects from birds to bears, and ghosts to gardeners.

Alongside the exhibition of paintings and drawings the organisers of the exhibition are working hard behind the scenes on a range of other activities to fully show off the quality, breadth and depth of Kevin Coyne's creative output in music, art and writing over more than forty years.

This exhibition will be launched on Friday 21 November to coincide with a performance by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion.
