Art e-Facts 14


Although best known as the director behind Eraserhead, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks David Lynch is also a prolific artist producing paintings, drawings, photography and video works.

Lynch enrolled in the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1966 for one year before leaving for Europe with the plan to study with Austrian expressionist painter Oskar Kokoschka. Though he had planned to stay for three years, Lynch returned to the US after 15 days.

A major retrospective of Lynch’s work opened last week in Paris.
