In honor of David Bowie’s recent birthday, twenty-two-year-old artist Helen Green animates 50 years of style from the iconic singer. Bowie’s innovative songs and stagecraft brought a new dimension to popular music in the early 1970’s, strongly influencing both its immediate forms and its subsequent development. A pioneer of glam rock, Green created illustrations of every single one of Bowie’s iconic looks from 1964 to 2014. ‘In celebration of David Bowie‘s birthday this month, I created a little animated portrait of Bowie through the years,’ Green wrote to The Huffington Post, ‘in appreciation of his mesmerizing evolution and reinvention.’ From mullets and eye patches to Ziggy Stardust, check out the artwork below:
