David Bowie’s legacy will live on for generations so it’s only fitting that the music icon be immortalized with a statue in his hometown of London.
This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll are working on the ambitious project with the city of Brixton and Bowie’s teams in London and New York. The group of life-long Bowie obsessives and local residents are looking to raise £990,000 (approximately $1.2 million) by March 21st.
As for the statue itself, word is that it’s “recreating the iconic lightning flash from Duffy’s Aladdin Sane LP cover in gravity-defying red and blue-sprayed stainless steel” as featured on the cover of his 1973 album of the same name and would be located just five blocks from Bowie’s birthplace.
The statue would accompany an Aladdin Sane mural painted by Australian artist Jimmy C. situated opposite the Brixton subway stop and near several prominent London clubs.
It’s been quite a year for Bowie, who posthumously swept all five music categories he was nominated for at the 2017 Grammys.
