Borin Van Loon: Illustrator: David Bowie 2
David Bowie: the actor (oil on board)
Rock Art prints

Posed for by the artist in his Leiston garret (Hah! Garrett's of Leiston! In-joke for the East Anglians), this is a way of encapsulating the most notable of David Bowie's prime period personae. From Thomas Jerome Newton (the character in The man who fell to earth), to the young American, Ziggy Stardust, Alladin Sane, The Thin White Duke and Just a Gigolo. People think that Madonna invented postmodern constant reinvention of the image/'personality', but Bowie was there way before. And making far superior music.
