David Bowie: Space OddityMusic_BowieSpaceOddity_Black_12.5x12.5 $44
David Bowie released his Space Oddity album in 1969, just days before the Apollo 11 lunar landing. The most notable single (by the same name) is about a fictional astronaut named Major Tom who is launched into orbit, only to be lost in space after leaving his capsule. Bowie is said to have been inspired to write the tune after watching Stanely Kubrick's masterpiece film, 2001: A Space Odyssey and you can clearly see aspects of the film play out through the song's lyrics.
The inspiration behind our 'David Bowie-Space Oddity' Art print
I was first introduced to Bowie's Space Oddity album as an art student back in the 70s. As someone who grew up watching the Apollo missions, I had always been drawn to space themes and really connected with the song's lyrics. Fast forward a few decades and I'm still a major fan of the artist and this song.
This piece incorporates Bowie's image, his intense, distinctively different blue and brown eyes, in a recreation of himself as Major Tom. It makes a great addition to any Bowie fan's collection or any art lover that appreciates musically-inspired artwork for their home decor.
