“I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.”


Acrylic on canvas by Paul Ygartua – 2017

This beautiful painting by Paul Ygartua depicts David Bowie face with the painted iconic lightning bolt from his Aladdin Sane cover.

In David Bowie words “An electric kind of thing. Instead of, like, the flame of a lamp, I thought he would probably be cracked by lightning. Sort of an obvious-type thing, as he was sort of an electric boy. But the teardrop was Brian Duffy’s, an English artist-photographer. He put that on afterward, just popped it in there. I thought it was rather sweet.”
