For rock and roll lovers, the series entitled Rock Dreams by artist Guy Peellaert is astonishing. The art style of each painting is filled with a rocker vibe that elevates these iconic figures to spiritual levels.

In the art pieces, Peellaert creates fictional scenes that could have being part of the lives of these mega stars. For instance, the Beatles drinking tea with the Queen of England, and Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and John Lennon hanging out at a burger joint. With bold and bright hues, these images celebrate the extravagant and surreal lifestyle of the rich and the famous, as well as the devotion felt by fans towards their idols.

The paintings by Guy Peellaert revive a nostalgic period of time where freedom, wealth and sex were the only dreams of many people.
