“The paintings are all your own”
As you surely know by now, 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 should 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.
Today’s marvellous pencil drawing is based on one of Terry O’Neill’s shots of Bowie during the filming of The 1980 Floor Show in 1973. An event captured beautifully in Terry’s superb, When Ziggy Played The Marquee.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition until July 15th. Tickets and details of other Bowie-related events at the Brooklyn Museum here.
