City Paint Phoenix 17 – Tribute to Bowie

When a couple of you mentioned that the man in the last installment of City Paint Phoenix looked like David Bowie, it reminded me that I had previously observed a section of city wall that had actually been decorated with images that were very distinctly Bowie.

The mural is located at 1715 N 7th Street in Phoenix, about one block north of McDowell Road for any local readers….

While I was never a fan, I understand that David Bowie was an iconic figure in the music world for a period that spanned decades.

So instead of blabbing on and on about the guy and his career from any research that I would have had to conduct in order to do so, I will simply offer that I find the mural and the skill of the artist to be rather compelling….
