HE is famous for his cult movie classics The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet.

But hip director David Lynch is also something of a budding painter.

Actually, the filmmaker, who first trained as a painter before getting behind the camera, is having an exhibition in Andalucia.

The Twin Peaks director’s first ever show in Spain is taking place at the Provincial Cultural Centre (PCC) in Malaga.

With 19 lithographs taken from two sets of prints: Paris Suite and Women, the Gacma gallery is presenting Action Reaction: The creative world of David Lynch.

According to curator Antonella Montinaro, the influence of surrealism is apparent in Lynch’s work “with the subconscious as a source of inspiration.”

The exhibition runs until March 8.
