About This Work: David Bowie

I love Pop Art. I also love Abstract Expressionism. I also absolutely love David Bowie. It seemed to me that the three should be combined somehow, and this was the result.

I found a photo of David Bowie from his “Thin White Duke” era and played around with the contrast. I copied it over three more times and then added colour to each one. From there, I just played with a lot of brushes in Photoshop to make it look like screen printing and paintbrush strokes. The result is pretty fun, I think!
