The Opera Gallery London Presents ?The Many Faces of Bowie? - An Artistic Tribute to David Bowie
On 21stJune 2013, The Opera Gallery London is set to unveil a collection of David Bowie inspired art. ?Bowie Mania? is reaching yet another peak right now and one-off masterpieces will be on show, including tributes from some of today?s leading contemporary and street artists, including; Mr Brainwash, Joe Black, Eduardo Guelfenbein, Nick Gentry, Marco Lodolaand The London Police.
The Many Faces of Bowie showcase each artist?s unique interpretation of David Bowie?s unprecedented influence and inspiration on their lives.
Bowie?s alter ego Ziggy Stardust, will be immortalised in ?Bowie Triptych? by celebrity and ?rebel of the street art world? Mr Brainwash, known for depicting faces of Jay-Z, Kate Moss, Marilyn Monroe and David Guetta in his signature neon spray paint dripping colours.
Similarly installation artist Marco Lodola will pay his respect to Bowie using Ziggy Stardust as an inspiration for his mixed media and light box sculpture titled ?Aladin?.
?David Bowie is an incredible icon; a term to be understood as an idol but also in the ancient Greek notion of eik?n meaning ?image? or even religious work of art. It is clear to see that he has influenced many lives, and every artist involved was proud to commission a piece in his honour? Jean-David Malat, Director Opera Gallery London
Additional highlights include Eduardo Guelfenbein?s large and striking abstract on canvas honouring David Bowie, with mesmerising strokes of acrylic exposing the hidden face of the icon when admired from afar. Simply magical.
And London?s very own Joe Black?s outstanding portrait of the singer made out of over 9,000 painted test tubes. A 3-dimensional artwork that will excite and surprise the viewers? eyes.
The new London art exhibition will be at Opera Gallery London 134 New Bond Streeet - June 21st- August 31st 2013.
