Tribute to David Bowie


It's funny how you can drive down a certain street many times and not see something pretty spectacular off to one side.  I'll blame it on how busy 7th Street is with 6 lanes of heavy traffic.  However, I finally spotted this incredible mural that is a wonderful tribute to the life and talent of David Bowie.  It's eight colorful panels of the various images of this multi-talented celebrity.


The mural was painted by Maggie Keane back in 2016.  She said she always wanted to paint  David Bowie in a mural but when he suddenly died, she decided it should be a tribute.


Ms. Keane works as a sketch artist for the Federal Court System so she has proven talent on both a large and small scale of works of art.


So that this post isn't excessively long, I'm only posting 4 of the 8 panels today.  I'll post the rest another time.  They are all pretty special and worth sharing.

I really like how she captures Bowie in some of his various personas. That's one of the things that made him so great! Looking forward to the next four panels.

Vividly done. The first thing I think of when Bowie comes up is not a music persona, but a role, his playing Tesla in The Prestige.

Sharon, is it ok if I put link to this (and your second post about it) on my blog? I keep running into Bowie things-- which is weird! In the past few days I have heard so many songs randomly. Yesterday, while digging through storage looking for something else, I found a paper I wrote in college about a David Bowie song. Ha ha... why? No idea, but I am writing a little post about it.
