                                                           Batbileg Darjaa on “Queen”

Mongolian artist Batbileg  Darjaa talks about his experience of working on his most famous painting “The Magnificent Years”, which was inspired by the music of “Queen”. His tells his story of being a music fan in the early 90s in a socialist country before the democratic process took place in Mongolia and how hard he worked on his paintings to achieve his most ambitious plan to complete the full set of four paintings, now hosted by the Dominion Theatre in London, where  We Will Rock You musical is staged six days a week for over 10 years. He goes on to say that his oriental background, combined with his professional training in western Modernist style of painting, helped him to tell a story about 40-years of  the legendary rock band “Queen”.
