Blue Room

The Gallery

Theo Casamegas was one of the first people to move in to Freewheelin' House. He is an artist and he has a special notion about Bob Dylan. Theo considers that you can place Dylan’s art against the art of any of the greatest artists who have ever lived and it would favour in comparison. In his lifelong pursuit of endeavouring to attach some kind of proof to his notion, Theo adopts the works of the great artists as a backdrop to images of Dylan. In the Gallery you will find the 38 covers that Theo designed for Freewheelin' and below you will also find the names of the artists (together with other luminaries) who appear in these covers. If you click on the name of the artist or luminary it will take you to the cover and if you want to read more about the picture then Theo has provided an explanation under each study. [To come back to this page, just click on the back button in your browser.] You may be interested to note that the works of Pablo Picasso appear on 6 covers and that is much more than any other artist featured. Are you trying to tell us something Theo?

Freewheelin' House

Click for larger image


Freewheelin' House used to be the home of the Freewheelin'-on-line website. It is a replica of the ‘The Yellow House’ at Arles, South of France, featured in a painting completed by the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh in the summer of 1888. Vincent lived in this house and his intention was that it would become a commune for like-minded poets and painters who would, by force of their creativity, raise the barriers of art to a new level. The Freewheelers have no such lofty desires – we just want to do our thing in our own way. But Vincent’s ‘Yellow House’ is a great place to be! 

The doors of Freewheelin' House were opened to the public on 24th May 2003, a year after the instigation of the Freewheelin'-on-line magazine. The first person to enter the house was John Nye, who masterfully built it and tastefully decorated all the rooms. If you look closely you'll find a commemorative plaque to John Nye in the house and the Freewheelers wish to thank John for all his invaluable help on this project.
