International tributes left at David Bowie’s Brixton shrine – May 2016 photos

Tributes keep on coming to David Bowie's Brixton shrine

Although the main tributes were cleared away at the beginning of April this year, the David Bowie shrine in Brixton continues to attract fans from all over the world, with some leaving personalised notes, drawings and mementoes.

The David Bowie mural in central Brixton was created by Australian street artist James Cochran in 2013, and it provided the focus for a spontaneous public outpouring of grief and affection on the news of Bowie’s death in January 2016.

The council has suggested that the mural may soon be permanently protected by being locally listed.

At Brixton Buzz we recorded the changing messages, artwork and flowers on an almost daily basis and now have extensive photographic archives of the many fan tributes left to the Brixton-born musician and superstar.

Although the display is much more modest these days, new tributes still appear regularly, and we intend to keep recording what we see when we pass by.

This selection of photos were all taken during last month (May 2016):
