DomingoArt – New Artist Spotlight

DomingoArt

Borea ‘Domingo’ Domenico is a very talented artist from Italy whose cool drawings and paintings can be found under the banner of DomingoArt all over the best parts of the Internet.

The subject matter he takes on is always rock & roll from music icons to movie characters and memes. Sometimes he’s going with a realistic depiction, other times he’s primarily capturing the energy or the spirit of a particular individual and their work.

Here are two beautiful David Bowie pieces which pinpoint different personas of the music god who sadly left us very recently:

On the artist’s DomingoArtStore, you can find all sorts of goodies, not just paintings and drawings but T-shirts as well. Custom orders are totally doable and the store is very accommodating.

Andy Warhol – Song Of The Day

Andy WarholFrom David Bowie‘s 1971 album Hunky Dory, “Andy Warhol” was an acoustic track which opened with a mess of crazy sound effects and some studio chatter involving Bowie explaining to his producer how to say Warhol’s name correctly. It’s about as quirky as you’d expect an Andy Warhol song to start and then the cool latin riff kicks in. It’s funny to think that Warhol himself didn’t like the song and that, much later, Bowie would actually play the artist in the movie Basquiat. It’s a unique, really fun tune and I definitely recommend it.
