David Bowie

Music legend David Bowie has died at the age of 69 after battling cancer for 18 months.

In a statement released on the star’s Facebook page, his family said he had passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones after battling the disease since 2014.

He may be remembered for his influence on music culture, art, fashion and films but his legacy goes on and has featured among some street art in the UK over the last few years.

This larger than life mural by Jimmy C aka Jimmy Cochran was captured in Brixton by Hooked Blog.
