Sylvester Stallone to launch art retrospective

Los Angeles: Hollywood action artist Sylvester Stallone has been invited to showcase his artwork as part of a retrospective in Russia.

It will be on display for a month starting Oct 27.

The 67-year-old will display his work, titled `Sylvester Stallone, 35 Years of Paintings`, at the State Russian Art Museum in St. Petersburg, reports

"It`s very, very flattering because there`s so many great artists involved, but for some reason, they chose me to go over there and show this 40-year retrospective of all the paintings from the beginning up until now," Stallone said in a chat show.

"I thought it was really odd but also... a fantastic opportunity because that`s eventually where I`d like to focus a great deal of my time," he added.
