David Bowie, Oil on canvas, 50x70cm (unframed)
I painted David Bowie because he represents, for me, all that is beautiful and hopeful about art. It is the expression of the inner soul, and I believe that art in all its forms has the power to connect us and make us see the world constantly anew. I think both creativity and connection with others need courage and risk-taking, and these are things that Bowie epitomised. Art allows us to see the humanity that connects us all, and that is why I find so much hope and inspiration in artists like David Bowie.
