Footnotes

  • David Bowie began producing his own artwork in the mid 1970s, a practice which culminated in his first solo exhibition, the 1995 retrospective New Afro Pagan and Work: 1975-1995, held at The Gallery in Cork Street, London. The exhibition displayed a collection of portraits, sculpture, and artworks inspired by German Expressionism and Bowie's recent trip to South Africa. A silver lifemask of the artist was also included in the exhibition.
