The rock artist Geronimo, a friend of the Rolling Stones, is opening a new exhibition today at the gallery of The Club in Cafe Royal. His works include the tongue logo, made from flattened drinks cans, that became synonymous with the band.

Geronimo, who is self-taught, also goes by the name Jumping Bull. He met Keith Richards by chance when The Rolling Stones were touring and they became good friends.

The band had a big influence on Geronimo's work, inspiring much of his art, including paintings, portraits and sculptures. The exhibition will be followed by a tour of his work.
