The gallery is proud to present exciting new art by this incredibly popular artist. Welcome back JJ Adams and his tattoo collection of works.

The Cult of Bowie, and His Sell Out Show at the V&A

The cult of Bowie, and his sell out show at the V&A

Were a big fan of Bowie here at the Gallery and it seems that the rest of the UK loves him just as much as we do. Just last week the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, crowned its exhibition ‘David Bowie Is’ about the life of the music artist, the fastest-selling in its history.

This retrospective exhibit captures the artists long and captivating career using an array of sources and archived material, some taken the artists own personal collection. The nature of Bowie’s elaborate and ever-changing persona makes this one of the most dynamic, visually stimulating and covering a wide range of art styles that cross generations.

Many will already be familiar with his music; it seems you can’t get through any ‘coming of age’ film without at least one track or poster of the man popping up during one melancholic or symbolic frame. Even if that’s not your thing, you’re bound to have seen (or heard) him elsewhere. He rose to cult status in the 70’s, and has not yet fallen from grace.

Tributes to Bowie: Left – ‘David Bowie’ by Nick Holdsworth, Centre – ‘David Bowie’ by Mike Edwards, Right – ‘David Bowie’ by Ed Chapman

The V&A are not the only people to notice and promote his cult status. Artists have for a long time been inspired to replicate, build upon and represent the man. We have not one but three depictions of the great man himself by three separate artists, each using different techniques and want to depict Bowie in differing contexts, making each piece a unique and original retake of his multiple personas. This trend is not one confined to our four walls, and after the V&A’s success and a resurgence of Bowie to modern audiences with the successful release of his new album ‘The Next Day’,  it is a trend that looks set to continue and prosper.

The success of this exhibit come as no shock and with the cult of Bowie set to continue, we look forward with some eagerness to see what new alter-egos, iconic images and sounds will come out of this genius.

Long Live the Cult of Bowie…
