David Bowie

née David Robert Jones

was arguably one of the greatest innovative voices

in the music industry.

An impressive career, which spanned decades

he was a chameleon creative:

ever-changing, ever-inventing, ever-shocking.

 

 

What was predictable, was his celebrated unpredictability:

his music which, fused different styles/genres of musicality and

his image which, resonated agender aspect.

His on and off stage clothing aesthetics was focus of the exhibition

David Bowie Is

which was curated/staged in 2013 at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

 

He was an avant-garde pop artist

a provocative meld of actor/musician

assuming varied personae, distinguished by specific fashion

as headline to promote the varied tales of his life musical journey.

His was a multi-sensuous approach to his craft,

a visual and sound extravaganza.

His recently released album

Blackstar

whose sound

whose look

will no doubt, continue to influence for generations to come
