'Heroes' is a collaborative piece by multimedia artistDavid Lloyd and photographer Justin Thomas. The two print designs (Crimson & Mocca) celebrate the life and work of David Bowie (the shot was taken during his set at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid). They are created on archival fine art paper. The high quality inks and materials used, combine to produce incredibly rich colours and detail with a light fastness guarantee in excess of 60 years indoor display life.
Please note: Due to worldwide shipping constraints, we are unable to sell our prints mounted and framed as illustrated.
"The last time I saw Bowie live was on the 2nd December, 1999 at the Astoria on Charing Cross Road in London with two thousand other extremely lucky souls. I'd seen Bowie in the two decades prior to this one but the Astoria show was, for me, the best of them all. He was so laid back and full of fun, it felt like you were all at a wedding where Bowie just happened to be the live act who knew all the guests (playing up to the audience and making jokes "Oh you've changed your hair? Is that a new jacket?").
We were about three people deep from the front and at times it felt like we were at a football match (Drive In Saturday) with everyone singing along, arms raised with the band. "Look at 'em all up there with their champagne" gestured Bowie to the likes of Jagger and Boy George upstairs. "Ah but we don't care" looking down at us with a wink and a smile "We got the drugs down 'ere!!!" Just before they left the stage, Bowie couldn't help leaving us with a nod to his infamous Hammersmith Odeon Ziggy exit... "This...is the last show... we'll ever play... in the 20th Century!"
