    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.

    What: Billy Zane: Seize The Day Bed
    Where: Rook & Raven Gallery, 7 Rathbone Place, London, W1T 1HN; 020 7323 0805
    When: October 11 to November 7
