20 Artistic Visions of David Bowie

20 artists David Bowie

Heavy Metal editor Frank Forte did some digging and found these 20—and surely there are more—portraits of the late David Bowie, by a wide variety of artists. Most are portraits of Bowie, although a few are Bowie-fied portraits of other famous faces. But the point is—Bowie is, was, and shall remain everywhere. Forever and ever, Amen.
