Station to Station
A1 size poster (840mm x 600 mm)
I was asked to take part in the Pin Ups exhibition as part of the Dublin Bowie Festival 2017.
Participants in the Pin Ups exhibition (Dublin Bowie Festival 2017) where asked to illustrate two songs picked by
relevant broadcasters and musicians. I got two iconic songs: Heroes and Station to Station.
Station to Station is cryptic and complex and there are many stories about it: references to astrology, occultism,
Alistair Crowley, train travel... I read an interview where Bowie mentioned the song being about his music career being the struggle to get from hit to hit. I made a strong central composition of Bowie as a Christ Pantocrator with the journey between songs as the main background feature.
