The immortal, extraordinary-hybrid artist combined uniquely: science fiction and art, real and surreal, male and female, strange and familiar, earthly being and alien. He changed the way we perceived music, performance, fashion, beauty, gender, sex and death.
Through his multiple alter egos: Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and the Thin White Duke, he established himself not only as an artist who sang about science-fictional and bizarre topics, but also as someone who embraced the discomfort of humanity juxtaposed against the universe.
His life was a work of art.
And so was his death.
RIP David Bowie.
