Adam West to sell Batman-themed paintings he created

Batman actor Adam West is selling paintings he created of villains from the show.

The actor, who portrayed the tights-clad Caped Crusader in the 1960s TV series, is selling the pieces at an art gallery in the central Idaho resort town of Ketchum near where he now lives.

Criminals On Canvas openes this week, with the star set to attend.

The 88-year-old said that his paintings capture the humour, zaniness and depth of Batman villains as well as the Freudian motivations of Batman.

The actor’s deadpan portrayal of the comic hero in the camp 1960s series brought the Capped Crusader into the national consciousness as he battled Catwoman, the Joker, the Riddler and the Penguin.
