David Bowie

David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016) was an English singer, songwriter, actor, and visual artist known professionally as David Bowie. Born and raised in South London, Bowie developed an interest in music as a child, eventually studying art, music, and design before embarking on a professional career as a musician in 1963. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, his music and stagecraft significantly influencing popular music. During his lifetime, his record sales, estimated at 140 million worldwide, made him one of the world’s best-selling music artists. Bowie was also a painter, illustrator and visual artist, as well as an avid art collector; he was invited to join the editorial board of the journal Modern Painters in 1998. The cover for his 1995 album Outside is a close-up of a self-portrait (from a series of five) he painted that same year, one of which is now on exhibit at True North Gallery.
