Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you the purrfect gift for the Cat Lover / Bowie Fan on your holiday gift list!

This surreal and psychedelic portrait of David Bowie, presented in a kind of mosaic/cubist style not unlike that of Eduardo Kobra, was painted by Vancouver-based, Manila- born artist Roy Geronimo. The portrait appropriates the now-iconic “Shh” pose taken from the famous 1995 shoot by photographer Gavin Evans in conjunction with the release of Bowie’s album, Outside.

Just when you think Cody Foster & Co. can’t create any new and clever David Bowie Christmas Ornaments for your holiday décor, you see this thing at NY Now and are proven wrong. Yes, it is a glass ornament of a white cat head with the Aladdin Sane lightning bolt across its face and heterochromia eyes — which Bowie did not actually have, but which he is commonly depicted as having. What Bowieactually suffered from is called anisocoria: namely that one pupil was larger than the other. Live and learn.

If I am ever asked to name my three favorite pastimes (which really is not often) I will respond as follows:
I like to Eat
I like to Look at Art
I like to Watch TV
You can see that my love of Art is way up there, ranking just behind my love of sustenance, TV and also (not mentioned previously) sleeping. Art Fairs are a terrific way to get a huge and diverse art fix in one place and my favorite is the twice-annual Affordable Art Fair (AAF), which I have been highlighting and photo-recapping since 2015! I can’t believe how much I rule.
