An exhibition will feature 100 drawings and sketches by the late Beatle, called The Artwork of John Lennon, runs Friday to 9 October at 130 Prince St. in SoHo.
It marks what would have been Lennon's 72nd birthday.

Lennon's art consists of quick sketches and the Oriental technique of sumi ink drawings.
