Five years since we lost David Bowie, Hypergallery presents a touring exhibition featuring EXQUISITE limited edition prints and AFFORDABLE works by a collection of talented artists.
Vincent McEvoy was the art director of Polydor in the 1970s. As such, he had unique access to some of the biggest names in Rock, including The Who, Bob Marley and Eric Clapton. In recent years he has rekindled his passion for silkscreens, producing powerful pop-artworks based on some of the wonderful and iconic memorabilia that he accumulated throughout his career.
Terry Pastor is a graphic artist who has worked for clients all across the world, creating iconic imagery with masterful flourishes of his airbrush. Pastor is best known for two images that jump-started the career of a young David Bowie, Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust. He has revisited and ‘remastered‘ his original source material in the creation of his stunningly sympathetic editions.
David Studwell is a contemporary British artist and print maker who harnesses the spirit of the sixties and seventies, the cult of celebrity and the legacy of Warhol to produce iconic screen prints. His works explore the darker side of fame, nostalgia and Americana. Private moments become graphically public, produced in bold and vivid colours.
Christopher Makos is an American photographer and artist. He apprenticed with photographer Man Ray in Paris and collaborated with Andy Warhol, who called Makos "the most modern photographer in America." His work has been exhibited in the Guggenheim, Tate Modern and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
Gray explores colour, elements of pop art and image manipulation. Dipping images into paint, digitally re-colouring photographs and applying collaged additions allow him to take an image on a new journey by imposing his own identity. Gray‘s use of everyday products and quick manufacturing processes give his work a feeling of universal accessibility.
Michael Spencer Jones is a hugely successful rock photographer whose work graced some of the most recognisable album and single covers of the 1990s, most significantly those by Oasis and The Verve. Recently, he has reached back beyond his own era, colouring and reworking vintage photographs including this shot from Bowie's ‘last’ UK tour in 1973, shortly before his announcement that he would stop touring.
