Artist's description:

I've been into Bowie since 1973 when my eldest sister bought the record and played it to death. I was ten at the time and it was a kind of epiphany. I was listening to "Drive In Saturday" with my head placed in the middle of our parent's radiogram speakers. Suddenly I was in Bowie's world... "Let me put my arms around your head, gee it's hot, let's go to bed...". He made me feel like no other pop star had before; I was awakened.

I've been playing with this painting for nearly a year now, and as a result the artwork is now multi-layered. First Bowie on the "Man Who Sold The World" couch; then playing guitar on a dimly lit stage; next came the close up his 70s look coming out of the dark.

I've never been fully happy with it. Over the last few weeks ideas have been coming to me. Today, on what would have been his 70th birthday, I wanted to rework and complete it. A fitting thing to do considering he's given me 45 years of pleasure. Thank you David Bowie.
