Bowie was a leading Canadian artist, who influenced an entire generation of musicians with his distinctive style and innovative musical style. His paintings are known for their vibrant colors and unique motifs, often incorporating non-sequential Roman numerals. One of his most popular series was a ‘Dead Head’ series, which featured a range of different sitters.
Interestingly, Bowie had a large following in South River, Ontario where the painting was found. Cowley Abbott Auctioneer says he was contacted in November by a consignor who found the painting at a donation centre in South River known locally as the Machar Mall.
While it was unclear what sparked the bidding frenzy, Cowley Abbott notes that the painting has a lot of character, with a range of different styles and palettes ranging from bright and bold to muted and ethereal.
