“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 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. This method has proved quite successful so far.
Today’s painting depicts Bowie as Paul Ambrosius von Przygodski in the 1978 David Hemmings-directed, Just a Gigolo. The original photograph was taken by Christian Simonpietri.
You can enjoy all of the pieces on display at the exhibition for just three more weeks before the exhibition closes on July 15th.
