US shock rocker Marilyn Manson has unveiled his latest series of paintings in Europe.

The 41-year-old singer-songwriter has previewed some of his artwork ahead of the opening of a joint exhibition in Vienna, Austria, and says he finds exhibiting his art scarier than performing on stage.

Manson, real name Brian Hugh Warner, has created a series of watercolours for the show, titled Genealogies of Pain.

He admitted he was apprehensive about seeing his work displayed for people to criticise.

Speaking at a preview of the exhibition he said: “I feel very comfortable when I’m on stage in front of thousands of people. However, it’s quite frightening to come into a room that is full of my pictures and people looking at them.

“Art gives me the freedom I don’t have when I make music. In music you feel a connection to the voice and think about the person behind it. In art that’s secondary.”
