This art poster is a reproduction of the Danish artist Kristian von Hornsleth’s original painting called “GAY DADshowing a picture of famous musician, artist and actor David Bowie with the words GAY DAD written over his face. Hornsleth again wants to provoke the mainstream media, with this art piece.

David Bowie attende as various characters and in a gender-bending style, beginning with his first androgynous persona, Ziggy Stardust, in 1972. Bowie succeeded in  making  a glittery, alien-looking creature look cool, and he helped pioneer a sexy and of course  marketable form of otherness, that mainstream artists have tried to replicate ever since. But was Bowie gay ? Bisexuel ? Or  just experimenting with his own gender? Well thats a question we never really will get an answer to. But Bowie for sure pushed the limits of what was “gender normal”, so when he got married to supermodel Iman and  became a father to a son and a daughter, was he then a GAY DAD?
