“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.
Today’s painting is based on an image taken by Steve Schapiro during the recording of David’s appearance on The Cher Show in 1975. Enjoy this and many other iconic shots in Steve Schapiro’s superb BOWIE book.
You can view 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.
