It's been an year since the amazing artist, David Bowie, went to other kind of stars, an opportunity to be remembered in an artistic way. The Carré Doré gallery in Monte-Carlo pays its tribute to David Bowie with an exhibition. One artist, one theme gathered around a few artists to pay tribute. It all started yesterday with a private reception where the main guest was ... David Bowie.

The exhibition is entirely dedicated to the extraordinary pop icon - one of the most audacious, influential, and innovative artist of the contemporary musical world. A chameleon par excellence, a visionary, extremely attentive to all new trends. Through this exhibition, it was expressed the love and the admiration for the artist who, throughout his 5 decades of stardom, was able to keep up with the changing times, all while staying true to himself and his fans. The gallery has gathered several artists who were able to observe and reinterpret the creative process of the White Duke. Their pieces show just how much his work has penetrated and impacted the wide range of creative fields like art, fashion, photography, design, theatre and contemporary culture in general. Ziggy Stardust has left an permanent mark on visual pop culture. 

"Bowie has managed to stay relevant throughout the constant shift of eras and trends, a trend-setting icon that has influenced the taste and the style of various generations. I could never imagine another artist who could have done in many lifetimes what he did in 50 years. » Maurizio DiMaggio Journalist and speaker at RMC said.
