Did you know that David Bowie is the stage name of David Robert Jones? Born in London, in 1947, this artist became famous for his music, movies and even his paintings, but mostly because of his unique style. Sometimes called “chameleon of rock” thanks to his ever-changing image, Bowie has been a major figure of popular music for half a century and is considered one of the world’s most innovative and famous artists.
Amazingly, he can still be influential today, especially when it comes to his 70s and 80s music production, distinguished by an unmatched vocal and intellectual depth. The true fans cannot forget songs like Bowie’s first big hit, the 1969 theme “Space Oddity, or the success of “Starman”.
The impact of these songs at their time sired one of the greatest cults to a pop star in history. And with this cult came the birth of Bowie’s style and exceptional personas, like the famous Ziggy Stardust. The extravagant outfits of this alter ego, who had a very short life, revealed just one of many facets of a career marked by continual reinvention and musical innovation.
David Bowie is much more than just a singer – even if he is one of the best of all times –, he is a trend setter and a style watchdog that has been living a permanent transformation during a very long career. This infographic we have to show you is the proof of Bowie’s visual talent in a single place, from his hippie phase to the present.
