Artist's description:

Inspired by the 2016 re-edit of the 1973 official video for "David Bowie - Life On Mars?", directed by Mick Rock. This was the only time David Bowie wore this suit and make up.

The completion of this painting coincides with the launch of Elon Musk's SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket, which sent his Tesla Roadster sports car into deep space with David Bowie's song "Life On Mars?" playing on continuous loop.

The painting makes use of special iridescent paint to enhance the silk neck-tie and the texture of the background, which also creates a backlit effect giving the illusion that the subject is raised off the canvas.

Ready to hang with brass wire and fittings attached.

Materials used:

Liquitex acrylic paint applied with palette knives and brushes onto gesso-primed stretched canvas
