Street artist Jimmy C’s take on photographer Brian Duffy’s iconic photo for the Aladdin Sane cover looked down on fans who came to pay their respects, a fitting tribute to the beloved icon.

Now, several weeks later, another mural has popped up, but it’s not been met with quite the same reaction.

BBC Radio Sheffield drew the wider public’s attention to the new mural by local artist Trik9, and despite their enthusiastic tweet — “Looks brilliant doesn’t it?”— the verdict isn’t good. Read more…

LONDON –  Viewers have criticised Channel 5 show Celebrity Big Brother for broadcasting Angie Bowie’s reaction to her ex-husband David Bowie’s sudden death, calling it disgusting and distasteful.

The programme showed a short clip at the end of Monday night’s programme, promoting Tuesday night’s episode of the show. In it, the 66-year-old American breaks down telling Big Brother: “I haven’t seen him in so many years, I can’t make a big drama out of it”.

The sudden passing of modern musical icon David Bowie has left many fellow artists and fans around the world stunned, but it particularly had an effect on 19-year-old New Zealand singer/songwriter, Lorde.

If you saw Australia through the eyes of David Bowie — you’d see the mystical outback, its gritty, changing urban centres, and the country’s issues with race.

Bowie’s vision was best exemplified in his music videos, “Let’s Dance” and “China Girl,” the result of the artist’s long-held love affair with Australia. Both were shot in 1983 in Sydney and the outback — and presented a strong social commentary of Australia at the time
