Painting and Sculpture – David Bowie New Afro/Pagan and Work 1975-1995

by David Bowie

April 1995

In neither music nor art have I a real style, craft or technique. I just plummet through, on either a wave of euphoria or mind-splintering dejection. This can often all be held together by a bloody-minded determination to create something that was not there before.

It probably comes from the need to have seen it all.
