Hello everyone!

My name is Batbileg Darjaa and I am an artist.

I am also a massive fan of Queen, a magnificent pomp rock band, since I was 18 for more than 30 years! I love their songs and I produced something beautiful afer working on it for five years. I would like to share it with the fans and whoever Queen is close to their hearts! Here is the Press Release about my exhibition, which took place at the 25th Queen Fan Convention in Great Yarmouth, UK, between 26-29 March 2010. Jacky was so kind to organise it with my Manager Unro and I was so delighted to get excellent feedback from the fans! We have further plans to exhibit the artworks in London as well as Holland, Switzerland and some other countries on invitation received form the fans all over the world! So, thank you for your kind words and watch this space for future exhibition details.

Contact my Manager Unro at unurmaa@linguaglobal.org.uk for further enquiries or e-mail me at bataa_62@yahoo.com.

Artist Exhibits His Queen-Themed Artworks at the 25th Queen Fan Convention

dimension: 80x150cm each and 320x150cm for four paintings‘Magnificent Years’ by Batbileg Darjaa, Oil on Canvas, Dimension: 80 x 150cm each and 320x150cm for four paintings

Fans of the rock band Queen gathered at the 25th Queen Fan Convention in Great Yarmouth, UK, which took place between 26-29 March 2010, were pleasantly surprised.

Batbileg Darjaa, a loyal Queen fan since he was a young student in his native country Mongolia, where listening to pop and rock music was banned during the communist regime like in Russia, at the time when he found out about Queen music, has recently finished series of oil on canvas paintings and sculptures dedicated to Queen. After talking to Jacky Smith of the Queen Fan Club for sometime via his London-based manager, he was invited to display his artworks at the Fan Convention.

Batbileg worked on the series of four paintings (dimension: 80cm x 150cm each and 320cm x 150cm for four paintings), each dedicated to each member of the band Queen, for four and a half years. There are eight tapestries and three sculptures dedicated to particular Queen songs.

There are 31 ideas in the Queen series and the following details were represented in the painting:

  • 30 logos and tickets
  • 33 newspaper and book materials
  • 30 records
  • 70 names of their well-known songs composed by the band members, which became hits

Total of 130 images of four band members repeated in the four series. The breakdown is as follows:

Freddie Mercury x 47

Brian May x 31

Roger Taylor x 25

John Deacon x 27

Batbileg says, ‘Although I have not had an opportunity to meet any of the band members, I used colours and movements for each one of them to match the person’s character, personality and emotions. I imagined these based on the songs that they composed, on the way of carrying themselves, their behaviour both in normal life and on stage during performances, and I did so after carefully researching and studying these. I have to say that it was all my imagination and creativity’.

The Queen fans received the exhibition, particularly the paintings of four members, very well and some spent hours standing in front of the paintings each day so they can go through all the details that artist included in these magnificent series. The artworks were praised by guests, including Freddie’s sister Kash Cooke, who wrote: ‘Brilliant pictures – never seen anything like them before’. Peter Freestone, Freddie’s former PA said ‘wonderful colours, beautiful designs”. Jacky Smith of the Fan Club simply said ‘Stunning!’.

    I saw those at Great Yarmouth. These images don’t do the painting justice, there’s soooo much fine detail in it that just absolutely doesn’t come across here AT ALL.
    If any of you like what you see here – you’ll be amazed if you get to see the real thing.

    Would love to buy prints of these, if they were ever available …
