IT was back in the 60s that Dick Moles first caught the attention of the Ipswich music scene.

Today the former lead singer of the Sullivan James Band is exhibiting his artwork in the town for the first time.

Mr Moles, 60, said: “It's great to exhibit in Ipswich, I moved back here three years ago after 25 years in London. My art is digitally manipulated images, mostly portraits.”

David Beckham, Pete Doherty, Amy Winehouse and his children are among the images Mr Moles will be exhibiting at the Basement Gallery in Princes Street until the end of November.

Mr Moles said he still sings jazz and the band is now planning to reform and record again.

He added: “It's a bit of a trip down memory lane but we are hoping to do some recording in the next three months or so.
