“The paintings are all your own”
David Bowie collected all of the fan art he was sent over the years and now the Brooklyn Museum has fulfilled his desire that one day they would be exhibited.
We’re posting a piece online every Friday with the hashtag #DavidBowieArt. The aim is to eventually create an online gallery dedicated to Bowie inspired art.
Unfortunately, the creators of the majority of the works 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. This approach seems to be working as we’ve now connected with two of the first four artists.
Apologies for the low quality reproduction. Much of the work was photographed through glass and sometimes intrusive reflections were unavoidable.
We’ve a hunch that this week’s selection may ruffle a few feathers, as did last week’s, but isn’t that what art’s all about?
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition until July 15th. Tickets and more here.
