“I’ve made over 25 studio albums, and I think probably I’ve made two real
stinkers in my time, and some not-bad albums, and some really good
albums. I’m proud of what I’ve done. In fact it’s been a good ride.”
David Bowie Tribute Illustration Series By Helen Green In Remembrance Of The Great Musician
After an immortal career as one of the most revered rock musicians, and a style icon who became known not just for music but a face for originality, eccentricity and sex, David Bowie has passed away at the age of 69 on January 10, 2016, after an 18-month struggle with cancer. The legendary rock star was born on January 8, 1947, and has had an illustrious career in music, and in tribute to his memory we’ve featured illustrations of him by Helen Green.
Helen Green is a Birmingham-based freelance artist specializing in portraiture and illustrations. Music and fashion are at the heart of her art and David Bowie had been a great source of inspiration in her illustrations. Of the two showcased here, the first was in honour of his latest album “Blackstar” and completed only a couple of days ago.
Green’s art is brought to life by her passion in rock music and fashion. David Bowie’s ever charming, and electrifying music and style have been appreciated by the Green and now can be shared with the world as they mourn the loss of one of the greatest rock stars of our time. You can find these and other prints of her designs in her Society6 shop.
