David Bowie’s album artworks are among the musician’s memorabilia up for auction.

For fans of David Bowie, this is a dream come true: the opportunity to buy original David Bowie art, drawings, portraits, sculptures, and photo sessions of the group from the personal collection of the artist, who created the cover of one of his most successful albums.

When Bowie commissioned Edward Bell to create the cover art for the highly acclaimed album Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) after the Berlin Trilogy, it was the beginning of a relationship that lasted until the 1990s, including rock and pop chameleon. The tin of the Machine Period too.

The album marked Bowie’s transition to a more commercial approach to music-making, which brought him his greatest success three years later with Let’s Dance and The Serious Moonlight tour.

Now, Halls Fine Art Auction House in Shrewsbury, UK, partnered with Dory Gallery in Wales to present unique David Bowie art for sale.  They are some personally signed by Bowie himself and all offered for the first time on the market – at a dedicated online auction called The David Bowie Collection by the artist Edward Bell.

David Bowie art for sale includes a series of portraits depicting Bowie as Lazarus and a Savage Heart sculpture created to decorate the CD cover for Tin Machine II. Perhaps of greatest interest to fans will be the original evidence for the 1980s hit Fashion and the original evidence for the Scary Monsters album cover design, Bell’s original diptych sketch with Bowie for the Scary Monsters album, and the original photographs that inspired him.

David Bowie album artwork has not only traced his musical evolution but also elevated record sleeves to the status of high art.

From the pompadours and sideburns of the original rock and roll era to the safety pins and dyed mohawks that defined the punk movement, the image has always been a part of the music. However, it was only after David Bowie was able to fully understand how visual effects could improve their performance.

Bringing a new theatricality to rock, Bowie himself became a walking work of art, expressing every creative phase in new imagery and dramatic changes to his image. David Bowie’s best album covers not only trace the sonic revolutions that played out in his recordings but also elevated album covers to high art status, creating some of the most iconic images in pop culture history.

Low
