Lee Wagstaff


i have two pieces in the upcoming bowie/collector auction at sothebys this november 11th. this auction contains more than 350 artworks from david bowies private collection. my pieces are ´shroud` and ´baptism`. david bowie was the first person i ever sold art to - he bought these from my graduation show in 2000.

“the emergence of lee’s image on the shroud elevates him to the status of a surrogate divine seemingly without the intervention of God. it comes off as both disquietingly heroic and at the same time spiritually arrogant” - david bowie.
