To depict David Bowie’s flamboyant and fiercely unique persona I wanted to try something different with this portrait of him. I had to include his involvement in the movie Labyrinth but the image of him in the centre I believe truly symbolises, in my opinion, his totally individual and somewhat exotic personality. Gold, silver and black take rein in this colour scheme – colours that I keep coming back to subconsciously.
