Eduardo Kobra’s “Ziggy Stardust” mural

I recently made a pilgrimage to Jersey City to see this enormous Bowie mural on the side of a building, painted by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra in 2016. Somehow I have never seen this before or even knew it existed until recently. It is the ultimate “find Bowie” prize.

The mural is on Google Maps, which took us to a slightly wrong address, but it didn’t take us too long to find it. I mention this only because we didn’t find a great place to stop and admire the mural. I got this quick picture while illegally parked, before being shooed away.

Kobra has a distinct style, featuring colorful, geometric shapes used to frame and define his subjects. You can link to his website here.
