A visual tribute to David Bowie in the medium of neon + aluminium

Birmingham-based visual artist Louis Sidoli recently presented a series of Bowie portraits at Halcyon Gallery on London’s New Bond Street, in an exhibition that celebrated the late artist’s “golden years.” Τhe exhibition borrows its title from Bowie’s 1983 album “The Golden Years,” a compilation of songs recorded by the artist in the 1970’s —hence the dates written on each of the portraits. Sidoli’s signature technique of collage and neon lights proved the perfect medium for his subject matter, both for the neon light’s 1970’s vibe and the way it captures Bowie’s kaleidoscopic, glamorous and larger-than-life artistic persona.
