Meet the Artists
Drawing inspiration from icons of our time, Bowman’s work provides personality to contemporary pop culture. He boldly explores the humour in today’s society and its over saturation with idolization, the media, and consumerism. The recycled, retro feel of Bowman’s work comes from his use of discarded, common-place items – old mirrors, windows, door and a variety of other surfaces – as his canvas. New School Lounge Pop for all those Old School kids out there.
