Watercolor on paper

Oscar Morosini pays his tribute to the quintessential rock icon DAVID BOWIE on the occasion of his passing. The portrait features a polychrome surface, with pastel tones evenly and geometrically distributed, from which emerges the image of Bowie at the time of Ziggy Sturdust, an album released back in 1972. A tribute to the art, music and culture of the 1970s and 1980s of which the singer is still an undisputed symbol.

The work is signed at lower left and on the back.

1956 Milan, Italy

Oscar Morosini was born in Milan in 1956 where he lives and works. His artistic preparation, is self-taught. He began participating in group exhibitions in the early 1990s, exhibiting his works between Milan and the most important cities in Lombardy. For many years he has devoted himself exclusively to watercolor, developing a personalized technique that distinguishes him, especially for the accuracy of his work. 

Although based on very simple and essential schemes, Morosini gives life to a decorative painting, imbued with references to daily and social life, but above all with feeling. The artist, sensitive to making a contact with his audience, considers a watercolor to be well done when the viewer feels the sensation of entering the painting as if in a story, and frees his personal imagination; precisely for this reason Morosini, while being a realist, deliberately leaves certain parts emphasized so that the viewer, subjectively completes the image.
