The above painting purchased at a Canadian thrift shop is now listed at an auction after the artist was identified as . . . DAVID BOWIE. (!!!)
Somebody bought it for ONLY $4.09 . . . not knowing WHO the artist was. It’s titled “D Head 46” and is part of a series that David painted from 1994 to 1997. Models for the portraits included band members, friends, and even himself.
A spokesperson for the auction said, quote, “It’s been suggested that, for some of these important paintings, Bowie drew inspiration from the Ziggy Stardust era.” It’s expected to sell for up to $12,000.
