“The paintings are all your own”
As previously mentioned, David Bowie had collected all of the fan art he was sent over the years with a desire to one day exhibit them. Knowing this, the @brooklynmuseum has created exactly that with a section dedicated to those contributions within the David Bowie Is Brooklyn exhibition.
We will be posting a piece online every Friday with the hashtag #DavidBowieArt. The aim is to eventually create an online gallery dedicated to Bowie inspired art.
Sadly, the creators of the majority of the works that Bowie collected are unknown, but it would be a great help if anybody reading this has more information, be it the artists themselves or somebody who knows them.
Anybody out there know anything about this week’s picture? The artist has based their work on a Mick Rock photograph which can be found on the back of the Pin Ups album.
Finally, apologies to each artist for the low quality reproduction. Much of the work was photographed through glass and sometimes intrusive reflections were unavoidable.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition until July 15th. Tickets and more here.
