Ric Ocasek of The Cars art exhibit

Ric Ocasek of The Cars tells Billboard magazine that he has an upcoming art exhibit and plans on doing more painting in the future. ”My past art experience, I was a draftsman for a year once, and an assistant wallpaper art director guy for a year, this was like 18-19. I always drew, it was always meditative. But what I want to do with these drawings is blow ’em up on canvases and paint them. I’ve done shows, but those were the actual drawings, 17 or 24 inches high. These canvases are more like 4 feet. I’ve done some acrylics on canvas, maybe 10, whereas I’ve done 800 more drawings.”
