metallica Ex Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted Schedules First Art ExhibitJason Newsted’s first original art exhibition will be held May 6 through June 27 at San Francisco’s Micaëla Gallery, the bassist recently confirmed to Dunlop TV.

“With the title of most decorated heavy metal bass guitarist of all time intact, my purpose has shifted from making crazy and colorful music, to making crazy and colorful paintings,” he said during the interview. “I remain as disciplined, self-motivated, and dedicated to my art, as I have been.”

Newsted first turned to painting in 2005 as another outlet for his creativity.

“I am possessed by an undercurrent of kinetic energy that I have channeled through pure artistic creation for as long as I can remember, beginning with childhood drawings and songs, followed by teenage rock and roll based ideas, and ultimately, internationally recognized musical recordings and live performances.”

Newsted, who was with [lastfm]Metallica [/lastfm]for more than 14 years, left the group in 2001.
