“The thing about this exhibition is that it’s not just a lot of pretty pictures of
Bowie, gorgeous as he undoubtedly was. This is about listening to what he
said in his songs and trying to interpret his words - and the feelings the
music evokes for me - through visual imagery.” Paulo Baigent
This exhibition is more than just a celebration of the life and work of David Bowie. It is the result of a lifetime’s passion for Bowie’s songs. Created over the past three years, all the artwork in this exhibition is based on Bowie’s songs and lyrics.
Paulo has used a variety of media to respond to the inspiration of each of the songs he has chosen, including digital art, paintings in watercolour, acrylics and oils, and ink drawings - “I’ve never liked being pinned down by one style… which seems fair enough when your inspiration is the ever changing David Bowie.”
Hear the music that inspired each song while you look at the art.
More about the artist
Paulo Baigent has been listening to Bowie since being given a C90 tape of Ziggy Stardust and Hunkydory as a nine-year-old. He’s been a huge Bowie fan for over forty years now and there is clearly a section of his brain reserved for his Bowie fascination, filled with lyrics, songs and trivia. Paulo has worked as an artist, illustrator and designer for the last 30 years. He currently balances this with work as an art and drama teacher in Bath.
