Folkster's drawings accompany his latest album

Devendra Banhart displays his art in San Francisco
Devendra Banhart's art is being exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art until February 24, 2008.

The singer-songwriter created several drawings in conjunction with his recent album 'Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon', which will be on display alongside works from renowned Swiss painter Paul Klee in 'Abstract Rhythms: Paul Klee and Devendra Banhart'.

Banhart's drawings are featured in the 64-page book included in the deluxe limited edition of the album.

The exhibit also includes 10 additional drawings and photos of Banhart with his friends and family who contributed to the album.

Banhart said that the drawings and the album spring from a personal narrative developed around a fictional protagonist named Smokey, who is made up of character traits from several mythological figures.
