Ships From Copenhagen, Denmark
David Bowie was much more than a traditional artist. His revolutionary artistry expanded and broke down boundaries of sound, vision, sexuality and more. After the success of Ziggy Stardust, the song “Life on Mars?” was re-released in 1973 to wide acclaim. The video, with David’s bright red hair, blue eyeshadow, pink lips and iconic blue suit provided for a mystical feeling signature for David Bowie’s supernatural magnetism.
