As part of my “Icons” series, this is a portrait of Ziggy Stardust.David Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust, a rock star who acts as a messenger for extraterrestrial beings. Bowie created Ziggy Stardust while in New York City promoting Hunky Dory and performed as him on a tour of the United Kingdom, Japan and North America.
The painting is covered by a layer of epoxy resin. Resin is similar to varnish in that it gives a glossy, protective finish – only resin is MUCH thicker and can be applied all at once. When cured, the resin will look the same as 50 coats of varnish – glassy, glossy, shiny, beautiful.
