London: A collection of paintings by Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone have gone on show at a Russian Museum in St Petersburg.

"I think I`m a much better painter than an actor. It`s much more personal and I`m allowed to just do what I want to do. Quite often in acting you have to play a certain part, you cannot speak as much as you want to speak. I suppose the heroes don`t talk much, you have to be very stoic," Stallone said.

The actor had studied art before his film career took off and has also had shows in Switzerland and Miami.

The exhibition, titled 'Sylvester Stallone Art 1975-2013', is a selection of works produced by the 67-year-old actor over the past four decades, reported BBC online.
