What do you do on your downtime? Thrifting? Catching up on the latest box-set must-see? Well, if you are a bona fide Hollywood star like Billy Zane, you take this downtime and use it to create, well, art. For over 15 years, Zane has painted during filming breaks in wherever and whatever part of the world he finds himself.
It is only in recent years that he started to exhibit his work, and lucky for us Londoners, Zane's first international exhibition is opening today at the Rook and Raven Gallery in London's West End. We caught up with the star to talk about his artwork, and why he just doesn't fit the "anguished artist" bill.What: Billy Zane: Seize The Day BedWhere: Rook & Raven Gallery
