Hero, Jeremy Baker, acrylic on canvas, 120 x 90 x 3.5 cm. Unframed with finished edges.
Coincidentally, my homage to Bowie was completed the day after he was named ‘Britain’s most influential artist of the past half-century.’
I was lucky enough to see him live (around the time of his Let’s Dance Album) and witness his amazing musical and visual style.
JB’s favourite songs:
Man who sold the World, Jean Genie, From Ashes to Ashes, Starman and of course Let’s Dance.
