New D7606 Paste-Up Tributes To David Bowie Around The East End

It’s been one week now since the sad news of the passing of David Bowie broke to the world, with a response of shock and loss expressed by people all around the globe. We have posted on the reaction in David Bowie’s place of birth in London, where a pre-existing mural of the local legend became the scene of a shrine for people to pay their last respects to the departed artist (covered here). Here we would like to take a look ar some tributes to David Bowie placed up around the East End of London by paste-up artist D7606, who has over the last couple of days placed up multiple paste-up works, in variations of two formats. The first being his trademark and distinct colourful telephones – with an image of David Bowie as Aladdin Sane in the centre, and the second being an old-fashioned Television set projecting an image of David Bowie on the screen. We have wrote about paste-ups in here in the past, admittedly not frequently, however we have to say it is a form of artistic expression on the streets of London we are now keeping a closer eye on and we thought we would like to share these lovely tributes for David Bowie from D7606 that we spied today whilst wandering around Brick Lane and Shoreditch.
