Bowie is the man who elevated his music to what can only be described as an art form.
Driven by an entirely deeper dynamic than most pop artists, David Bowie inhabits a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of cliché, Bowie writes and performs what he wants, when he wants.
According to Bowie, the name “Ziggy” came primarily from the title of a London tailors shop (called “Ziggy’s”) that Bowie observed from a train one day. In an interview he said that it was his private joke that because Ziggy Stardust was going to be largely about clothes, he had named him “Ziggy”.
I have created a version of David Bowie | Ziggy Stardust that displays the colourful nature of this period in music, costume and art.
