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….














And lastly, to give proper credit for the work, I will close the post with a panel sharing the artist’s information…Maggie Keane…please click on her highlighted name to learn a little more about her.


As always, thank you for visiting and viewing another presentation of iPhound beauty….  If you’d like to view other presentations of street art from both Phoenix and Salt Lake City, you can click on this link to be taken to a continuous scroll of the posts.

  4. A labour of love by the looks of things Scott. Like you, I was never a fan but Bowie was a big part of my growing up in the UK in the ’70’s. No doubt a prodigious talent and certainly an iconic figure. These murals are quite a tribute!

    • I thought it was a sweet tribute, as well, Adrian…glad I stopped for the closer look. I understand he’s rather missed after his passing….

  5. Like most of your followers (and you), I can’t even recall anything done by Bowie, but the artist who did the street art is pretty amazing. Your photos aren’t bad either! 😀

  8. Just wanted to thank you for the great pictures, but most of all posting the actual address! Everywhere else I look online that talks about the David Bowie tribute just lists some vague cross-streets, which isn’t helpful if you aren’t that familiar with that particular area. Thanks to you I was able to pull it up on Google Maps so I could see what’s in the area and plot a course to it using Valley Metro when I’m down in Arizona later this week!

    • You’re welcome for the photos and the address…I find that the address always helps! And thank you for visiting and leaving a comment to let me know that you were here. I hope you had/have a nice visit in Arizona.

  9. I am thinking of visiting the mural again as I have a better camera now, do you know if this is still there or has it been painted over?

    • Hello…..yes, the mural is still there; I drove past it yesterday morning.
