The Spring Auction 2020 (58/83)


A young and innocent David Bowie is captured in miniature in this intimate portrait of the glam rock legend. 

For the portrait painter Angela Bell, this oil on panel was created as a tribute to one of the greatest cultural icons of our time. 

"My recent body of work has been focusing on a series of intimate, small scale oils and I have created a number of portraits featuring cultural icons of our time. I create detailed studies in oil, and through a process of working back in to the surface, I distort, eliminate and manipulate the image to create a new visual language.

This process is based on my personal relationship with the individuals I am portraying, as well as the desire to create a painting with which the viewer can establish a point of communication."
