“The paintings are all your own”
David Bowie collected all of the fan art he was sent over the years and now the @brooklynmuseum has fulfilled his dream that one day they should be exhibited. We’re posting a piece online every Friday with the hashtag #DavidBowieArt.
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.
As with several previous paintings, today’s likeness is of Bowie as Thomas Jerome Newton in the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. Based on two images, the original US TMWFTE poster and a still from the film.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition for one more month as the exhibition closes on July 15th.
