A portrait of David Bowie, Takumi Yamamoto, 2017
Concept car. A tribute to David Bowie, an artist who fascinated Takumi Yamamoto as much as car design.
As an artist selects and expresses himself through oil, watercolor, clay, wood, and metal as a medium, this is an attempt to express himself by using “the car” as a medium.
I first thought of this project over 20 years ago, and originally wanted to realize it in collaboration with David Bowie himself. As he sadly passed away just as the project started, it evolved into an homage.
