Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint and Resin on Wood.

David's essence hits a very strong and familiar cord in my soul.
I have immersed my self in his work, listening, watching, feeling and learning as much as I can about David Bowie.
I recently drove from Toronto to NYC where I spent 2 months in David's neighborhood...there working in the building attached to his home creating a 10x10 ft mural on wood panels that was then mounted on the wall beside his home. The mural was up from September-November. It will be auctioned March 2017 in NYC.

My process is to paint automatically while listening to his music and interviews. This character Starman appeared while I was listening to his song with the same title.
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie-David Bowie
Layers of acrylic with a coat of resin and then more layers with white acrylic and spray paint...a tribe being appears suckling on the breast of starman, their combined energy transforming into a butterfly....
