London - Bob Dylan is highlighting the iron in his soul in an art exhibition in London.

The show at the Halcyon Gallery features iron gates and sculptures by the musician, who has said that his early years in Minnesota's "iron-ore country" sparked a lifelong fascination with metal.

The "Mood Swings" show includes seven iron gates welded by Dylan from scrap iron and other metal parts, including a wrench, a roller skate, a meat grinder and lawn tools.

Gallery president Paul Green said on Thursday that Dylan had "taken objects from an industrial past and resurrected them, making them live again".

The exhibition also includes paintings and car doors full of bullet holes alongside newspaper reports about underworld icons including Pretty Boy Floyd and Machine Gun Kelly.

The exhibition runs until 25 January.
